A central question Michelle is always working to address is how parents can live in a way that is meaningfully connected to themselves and their children, even as the demands and complexity of contemporary life and work are accelerated. She believes at least part of the answer to that question lies in becoming more intimate with our own inner world. One of her favorite quotes is by Aristotle who shared; “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
Michelle is the mother of two boys. One who is already a teenager and one who is just a few years away. Her boys are her greatest life teachers and the inspiration for her work in the world.
