LIFE BEFORE COACHING
Michelle spent her earlier years competing with herself. She battled with an addictive personality and the idea of never feeling any accomplishment was enough. This road was not an easy one but it taught her that change starts with her. She learned to enhance relationships with others and translate her shortcomings into successes, celebrating the wins with a grateful heart.
She now realizes that every day is a gift and looks forward to sharing her passion for life with individuals interested in reforming their lives and minds. Her mantra focuses on uncovering the power within ourselves. “We have everything we need inside of us to be our best selves, we just need to uncover it and work for it every day.”
