She was Emmy Award nominated for her work on Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, and recently scored Hulu’s Tiny Beautiful Things series. She was also the executive music producer for the Apple TV+ series Slumberkins, creating all new original songs for the series. Michaelson made her on-stage Broadway debut as Sonya in Natasha, Pierre, & the Great Comet of 1812 in 2017.
