Michele's approach to coaching:
Michele takes a very direct approach to coaching and likes to dive deep with her clients. She is very interested what causes people to make lasting changes.

Michele loves to see her clients go from not believing in their best self to completely realizing their qualities and seeing their potential. It is an honor for her to carry the torch for her clients until they are able to see their light.
