Michelle fell madly in love with the science behind nourishing our bodies long before she first managed a vitamin store in 1999, but her fascination with what our bodies are capable of is unending. Over the years, she has watched countless people heal and thrive as they discover the nutrients their bodies crave. Her own health struggles have led her to keep looking deeper into the science of nutrition. Diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005, Michelle decided to turn her passion and fascination with nutrition into a tool that could help others who are also seeking optimal wellness. She obtained her degree in Health Promotion & Education from the University of Utah in 2008, which allowed her to become a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES). When she isn't educating at Natural Grocers, she's out in nature, lost in a book, or discovering new ways of manifesting bliss.
