Michelle believes that one of her most important roles as a provider is to serve as a patient advocate. She does this through transparent communication and by providing appropriate education for patients and their family members/significant others regarding their treatment.

“I like forming relationships with patients, making a plan of care with them, and following them over time. I love having an active role in affecting a positive change. It’s very rewarding to see the result when you successfully treat a patient.”

When not working, Michelle enjoys spending time with her husband and three boxers. She is an avid snowboarder, outdoorsman and also enjoys oil painting.
