Fishel was born in Mesa, Arizona, and was the daughter of Jennifer, a personal manager, and Rick Fishel, a medical equipment sales executive. The family relocated to Yorba Linda, California when she was three weeks old. She quickly moved on to do voice-overs and commercials, including several as a Barbie Girl for Mattel.
