I'm Michelle.

Freelance health & lifestyle writer​, expert interviewer, recovery and mental health advocate.

This is where you can learn a little more about me and my story.


I have been writing stories since I could hold a crayon and was first published for writing about depression in my early teens. At 17, I wrote an eating disorder recovery memoir titled Ana, Mia & Me. During the pandemic, I self-published the manuscript. 


Today, I translate the latest research, conduct expert interviews, and share my living experience to enhance health literacy for general audiences. I write regularly for top digital health platforms Healthline and Verywell. 


Previously, I spent four years working in-house as a top-performing lifestyle writer, editor, and content manager for a viral content company and two years brand voice building for Canada's organic cannabis company The Green Organic Dutchman. You can also find my work on The Mighty, Sick Not Weak, and Thought Catalog.


Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to learn more about my work and my consumer-forward approach to writing.
