Hey! I’m Michelle, a busy mamapreneur and health coach. And I’m about to help you transform your life!
Welcome to my community of beautiful moms! I help hard-working mamas take action to simplify their life and improve their health.

Because you are your family’s most treasured asset and you deserve to be happy, healthy and vibrant!
I get where you’re coming from …
As a mother of two energetic kids, an entrepreneur, a fitness trainer and coach, I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed on a regular basis. I’ve struggled with trying to be the ‘perfect’ mother, the ‘perfect’ wife and the ‘perfect’ businesswoman. I’ve struggled with trying to DO everything and BE everyone.
Can you say PRESSURE with a side serving of BURDEN!
As a result, I accomplished nothing. I often felt like a failure and began to loathe myself and my life. Monster Mommy regularly visited my household. I became so ashamed of the person I was turning into. On top of that, I regularly dealt with the vicious cycle of depression and often felt guilty for not being the role model that I wanted to be for my children. I was constantly feeling stressed out, frazzled and anxious which became so mentally and emotionally exhausting.
But then I figured it out …
Once I started reflecting on my life, focusing on my mindset and confronting the issues that were weighing me down my life began to change. Once I learned to be more compassionate with myself I began to love myself and treat others around me with more love and patience as well. I learned to be perfectly imperfect … and I’m perfectly okay with it!
So, who the heck am I?
I’m a mamapreneur! And I’m here to share my passion for health and wellness with you! I’ve always been active, but I wasn’t always a fitness entrepreneur…
My journey into the health and wellness industry began in my mid-20’s when I started teaching fitness classes as a part time gig outside of my full time office job. During this time I realized my joy for motivating others so I decided to change careers and went back to school to gain my degree in fitness. Fast forward a few years after graduation and I gained valuable experience managing fitness facilities, personal training and teaching fitness classes in a variety of gym settings in both Canada and the US.
Somewhere in there I managed to give birth to two beautiful children and started my own fitness business! For the next few years I continued to build my career skills and knowledge by obtaining my Precision Nutrition Level 2 Coaching Certification and the Functional Movement Screen Certification. Nowadays, I focus my time and energy into taking care of my family and building my online health coaching business.
I truly enjoy connecting with this amazing tribe of moms and helping them transform their health and wellness goals into real life action …
Because everyone deserves health and happiness!
