Michelle is a licensed Natural Health Practitioner, Holistic Wellness Coach and Diplomat of Pastoral Science & Medicine. She completed her undergraduate degree in Business Marketing at Bethel University in Minnesota. Michelle enjoys mentoring, vacationing in Arizona and spending time with her husband and 3 kids. Her passion for holistic wellness led her to complete a Bachelor of Natural Health and Doctor of Naturopathy Certification to educate others on a preventative approach to health. She worked in a wellness clinic for five years before transitioning to wellness coaching and is trained in the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition D.R.E.S.S. protocol.
The research Michelle started in her teen years regarding her own health challenges ignited a passion within her for Nutrition. Over the years she has dealt with challenges related to the immune system, the thyroid, chronic fatigue and leaky gut, but found ways to manage these conditions successfully through nutrition, supplementation, and stress management strategies. She believes that the body is fully equipped with everything it needs to thrive, but that many people need support, education, and guidance on how to support their own body in reaching optimal health. Michelle believes our current daily environment and food supply is so loaded with toxins we must intentionally support the body — the cellular nutritional needs for the body are foundational for all.
With her background in Pastoral Science & Medicine, Michelle has found a passion for educating and encouraging individuals to live out God’s design for them, to renew their view of nutrition, movement, and lifestyle in a way that will ultimately enable them to thrive.
