    For The Kids (non profit)

    non profit intiative

    In realizing there wasn't enough resources for kids on the Georgetown Divide to live their best life, Michaela and Sol Nisbet launched a nonprofit, For The Kids.

    Fundraisers (such as the Divide Chili Cook Off) raise money for their flagship program- the annual Water Safety and Awareness and other gaps within the community.

    the real me

    I'm a Fire Sign and a Water Lover (so, a walking oxymoron) who is authentic, honest & laughs a lot.


    I live in the Sierra Nevada's in Northern California with my husband and our son, Tucker. We live organic and simply but have a full house including fish, chickens, ducks, a Golden Retriever (Dennis), an Australian Shepherd (Walter) and a rescue cat named Stilly.


    Our homestead is self-sustaining, which keeps us busy. I rarely find myself bored, you'll find me hiking, doing yoga, gardening, golfing or reading.


    I have a passion for traveling around the world (20 countries & counting), and my life goal is to put my toes in every sea.

    other goofy things

    I'm an avid photographer and take a tremendous amount of photos. My brain remembers moments in pictures, thus I am rarely without a camera. A tiny fraction of those photos can be seen on Instagram.


    We spend a lot of time at the ocean photo-ing and fishing, and keep a YouTube channel that is host to many of our adventures.


    My husband owns a small - but mighty - machine shop, and he's made machined parts that are currently on the space shuttle.
