 Michelle Dowd believes (along with Einstein), that logic will get you from point A to B, but imagination will get you everywhere. After an unconventional upbringing, Michelle moved into Pitzer College at 17, and is eternally grateful for the education she received there, which continually reminds her, the future does not fit in the containers of the past.
