Ever since she can remember, Michelle has had a passion for helping others. Growing up with a physician father meant dinner time conversations surrounded by medicine and healthcare. Michelle always knew she wanted to be a nurse, but it was during nursing school that she found her passion for women’s health. After graduating nursing school in 2014, Michelle started her first nursing job at Northside Hospital in the labor and delivery unit. Being an integral part of such intimate moments sparked a bigger passion for being able to establish long-lasting relationships with her patients. So, she attended Chamberlain University to obtain her Master’s Degree in Nursing as a family nurse practitioner, while working full-time still as a registered nurse. Now, with over three years’ experience as a nurse practitioner in women’s health, Michelle has learned that her patients simply want to feel heard, seen, and understood. That’s why Michelle spends ample time with patients discussing different aspects of physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health. Michelle’s biggest goal as a women’s health nurse practitioner is to make her patients feel comfortable, encouraged, and empowered. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Michelle has special interests in contraception, infertility, prenatal care, menopause, and weight loss.
When away from the office, Michelle enjoys spending time with her sweet husband and two golden retrievers, playing tennis, socializing, and exercising.
