Michaels was adopted by an American family and was raised in Miami, Florida.
Unlike many adult film stars, Michaels waited quite some time before she decided to enter the adult entertainment business; she was almost 30 when she made her first adult film.
In 1998, she began performing in pro/am videos and soon graduated to "mainstream" porn. Michaels has 250 films to her credit.
Michaels has a scorpion tattooed on her pelvic bone, which makes her easily identifiable in adult movies. The Scorpion probably refers to her astrological sign, Scorpio.
