Her professional interests include adolescent health promotion, infertility and menopausal mid-life changes. As co-owner of Advanced Women's Health, Michelle takes pride in the Company's unique approach to Women's Healthcare.
Outside of practicing medicine, Michelle enjoys a second career in corporate and private event planning. Personal interests include traveling with her husband and children, cooking, gardening and spending time at home playing with her dogs.
