"Hi, I'm Michelle Casey, and I'm so excited to facilitate your epic healing journey! I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2014. Subsequently, as a result of malnutrition from my U.C., I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in September of that year. I've been a "health warrior" for the last 20 years, starting out as a chef in 1998, then as a gym manager and personal trainer, becoming a yoga and meditation teacher in 2009, and ultimately making the leap into full-time clinical nutrition in 2015. I've studied with the Nutritional Therapy Association, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, among others, and most recently was certified as an AIP Coach by Mickey Trescott, Angie Alt, and Sarah Ballantyne. Since moving to the Big Island in 2017 I've been excited about hosting retreats here, and I can't wait to share this magical, healing place with you!"
