Hey there, I’m Michelle – SO glad you found me!
Most days, you can find me hanging out in my home office or my inspiring co-working space. I’m a PNW transplant living in Austin (aka hot Portland!) and a functional medicine maven who LOVES nerding out on herbal remedies, healing foods, homesteading skills AND all aspects of entrepreneurship.

Since 2012, I’ve been perfecting the most effective, accessible, and streamlined virtual practice for high-achieving women. As a women’s health and entrepreneurship specialist, I provide a personalized blueprint, the strategy, and partnership these women need to get the mental focus and energy required to share their gifts, better serve their clients, and show up even more for the people they love through health and wealth mentorship.

In addition to one-on-one work, I also provide online education to support these women during their day-to-day and help them implement simple tactics to elevate their personal health and professional wealth.

I run my virtual practice from home, and I must say that it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Can you relate?

Sipping on oolong tea (or butter coffee) and helping women reconnect with their body, their mind, and their purpose feeds my soul. My goal is to help guide these women towards becoming their best self – radiant, fulfilled, and focused.

Through helping women reclaim their health, I’m also challenging the current medical paradigm. One where YOU’RE in charge. No more frustration, guilt or shame around sharing your experience. No more feeling like a number instead of a human being. THAT is not how transformation happens.

I value quality and accuracy. Unlike other docs, I won’t waste your time, your finances, or your sanity by throwing darts and hoping for the best. We strategize, and we don’t just address your health, we address the entirety of YOU, so you can live the life you were meant to live.

If you’re wanting another pill or supplement or magical elixir to help “cure” you, then keep on movin’ – because that’s not how I roll.

HOWEVER, if you want to underlying imbalances and use strategies and tactics that work, I’m your gal. Together, we’ll create a streamlined process that’s not only efficient, but also effective, so you can expand your business and thrive in ALL areas of your life.

From the first consult with Dr. Michelle, I felt valued and appreciated.  She treats people with respect and love.  That is rare, in my experience.  I feel like I matter to her, and that means a lot.  Her knowledge of the human body, health and healing are vast and it is growing.  She is a true healer, in the best sense of the word. - Kirsten in Portland, OR

If you’re a purpose-driven lady, but something is holding you back, keep reading. I teach, coach, inspire, and serve women who struggle with hormonal imbalances, mental focus issues and lack of energy – women who are working towards their goals, but know their body is a bit out of whack.
I also mentor wellness professionals who need help moving and scaling their business online.
It’s time to bring the radiance and joy back into your life, right?
The thing is, we’ve ALL got a case of information overload. Dr. Google and the oodles of information you can find online is crazy. Some of the advice I see (and hear) is not only confusing but outright dangerous. My guess is that you don’t need any more stress, anxiety, or worry in your life – especially when it comes to your health. You don’t need more information – you need action steps.
The women I work with are looking for a different approach. One that’s personalized, simple, consistent, and transparent – one where YOU are in charge. Imagine starting your journey with confidence and staying motivated by your results… sustained energy, sharp mental focus, and a lust for life.
The thing is, I GET you, because I’ve been there. Being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and PCOS within the span of a couple years can be a real wake-up call. Taking medications wasn’t an option I wanted to consider, so I found a more holistic approach. Through healing foods, specific nutrients, and simple lifestyle modifications, I was able to heal from the inside out and build a thriving business. I was able to decrease my thyroid antibodies and reduce the excess androgens (testosterone) in my body. My “diagnosis” no longer defines me.
Everything happens for a reason. I was in the trenches, and now I’m able to share my experience, and walk you through the transformative strategies that have helped hundreds of women.
I’m on a mission to share my clinical and business wisdom, so you can stop searching, and finally get the answers you deserve.
If you feel like I’m speaking your language, let’s chat.


Poor Sleep, Mood, Focus, Stress, Feeling “Tired + Wired”, Lacking Joy

Before we get started, I want to make sure it’s a good match for us both. So, if this approach piques your interest, check out my services page to choose the best program for your needs and then hop on a quick call with me. During our chat, we can dive deeper into your specific concerns, and I can answer any lingering questions. Then, if it feels right, we can get started.
If you’re dying to hear more (ha!), here are three things you might not know about me:
  1. I’m an INFJ. That’s right – total introvert to the MAX. We only make up < 1% of the population, so if you’ve never met one… say “hi”!
  2. For my 29th birthday, during my last year of med school, I flew to Barcelona on a solo trip for two weeks. I was pretty decent at speaking Spanish (although a not-so-secret goal of mine is to become fluent!), but I didn’t realize that the majority of people there spoke Catalan (brain fart!). So, I cried for two days straight before I picked my butt up and started to soak in the city. If you want to feel crazy empowered, I definitely recommend taking a solo trip.
  3. I used to be a pretty decent guitar player. When I was still in high school, I was taking an “Advanced Guitar Techniques” course at the local community college with only four other students. To be honest, I haven’t picked it up for years, but who knows, I may get the itch soon.
  4. BONUS: I’m passionate about driving a stick shift! I see it as a survival skill… do you know how to drive one?
If you’re still here, then I’m guessing you’re picking up what I’m putting down, so let’s connect!
Dr. Michelle is, first of all, a beautiful soul. She is kind, patient, and a wonderful listener. I can FEEL her healing energy and that she truly cares about her patients and colleagues. I have come to her often with questions about how to manage complex patients. Her insights and experiences are always excellent, well supported and patient centered.

Her go getter attitude, amazing discipline, organizational skills and professionalism will continue to serve her in her medical practice, as will her vast knowledge base in both Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture, and Functional Medicine. She is a scholar and is committed to furthering her knowledge base through continuing medical education and seminars. I have been very impressed by her patient protocols–she has put great thought and energy into each of them.

Dr. Michelle is a natural born healer, of that I have no doubt. I am blessed to know her and clients are lucky to meet her because she will do everything in her power to help them become the best versions of themselves. - Dr. Maysa Alavi in Los Angeles, CA
