About Michelle

I am a compassionate and caring Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist with over 7 years of experience in helping individuals not only manage their chronic health conditions and weight, but reach optimal wellness and thriving.

Approach to care

My approach to nutrition care is comprehensive and individualized. I believe in looking at the whole person and trying to understand the root cause of illness and symptoms versus providing a generic, one-size-fits-all recommendation. I take a "coaching" approach meaning I aim to partner with my clients and allow them to lead their own journey.

Your first session with Michelle

During the first session I will take some time to get to know who you are and do a full, in depth assessment of your health history, lifestyle, and goals.
