Miss A Columnist

Michelle Taubman is a charity correspondent for Ask Miss A. She is passionate about fashion, healthy living, writing, non-profit, and inspiring others. Her mottos to being successful are the two B’s, always “be yourself “ and “believe in yourself.” Without these two fundamentals she would not have had the courage to go off on her own and form her own consulting business in 2011, formerly known as Tru Beauty Consulting and today is called The Frugal Fashionite www.frugalfashionite.com. Due to the popularity of The Frugal Fashionite, she has recently expanded into the health market, launching another brand called Zen On A Plate, www.zenonaplate.com. Both blogs allow Michelle to consult and partner up regularly with companies that need media and communication services in both areas of interest. She also holds a New York Real Estate license where she works as an agent helping buyers and sellers find properties in NYC.

When she is not writing away or finding a space for others to call their home or office, she can be found working out, reading, doing yoga, traveling, cooking, exploring new places in NYC, and being outdoors. She received her Bachelors of Science from Miami, OH, and her favorite experience in college was studying abroad in Luxembourg which gave her not only the opportunity to travel among to ten countries, but see the world from a different lens. One day she hopes to set up a non profit foundation with her brand Zen on A Plate that will provide hunger relief to those in third world countries or assist lower income families in the US that don’t have the means to properly feed their kids the best nutrition.
