You are looking to improve certain heart health parameters like cholesterol, triglycerides, and/or blood pressure levels
You want to learn what foods to consume to optimize cardiovascular function
You want to clarify and debunk certain common heart healthy diet myths and understand the science behind which foods your heart needs to properly function
You want to learn about and address underlying causes of heart disease and heart disease progression, including insulin resistance, inflammation, atherosclerosis, and oxidative stress to reduce your risk of heart attacks and strokes
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and a Certified Diabetes Educator with a Masters of Science Degree in Clinical Nutrition with over 10 years of nutrition experience in science based cardiology - in both the prevention and management of it.
Science based heart health nutrition shouldn’t be contradictory. In fact, the research is very strong, and I am so happy to be able to provide it to you in a jam-packed 6 week heart optimization group program.
Each week in my 6 week heart optimization group program we have a 1 hour LIVE Zoom lecture where I address, via science based research, the underlying root causes of heart disease. This includes insulin resistance, oxidative stress, LDL cholesterol formation, progression and promotion of plaque formation in the arteries, atherosclerosis, blood vessel health and more. All of these are addressed in order to ensure you are protecting your heart and reducing your risk of a future cardiac event!
This group meets weekly for 6 weeks and is recorded in case you miss it or you want to watch it again in the future.
This program is designed to increase your confidence around nutrition (because you’ll learn the WHY that is backed up by research), help you optimize your laboratory parameters (from LDL cholesterol, uric acid levels, blood pressure, triglycerides, blood sugar levels, and more), and empower you to take ownership of your health to reduce your risk of any future heart event.
It is important to not just watch your laboratory parameters, but take action to actively reduce it for the rest of your life!
This group also gives you access to me and support from a great community via a closed facebook group to keep you on track, motivated, supported, and have the ability to ask me all your questions!
Six 60-minute LIVE zoom lectures that are jam packed with blood vessel optimization strategies to reduce your risk of heart attacks!
Meal, recipe, and snack recipes and inspiration!
All of your questions answered, myths debunked, and confidence around nutrition boosted!

“Between turning 50, family risk factors, and some of my own numbers not being ideal, I was worrying about my heart health. Finding you was a prayer answered. I feel empowered to make the right heart health food choices with foods that will help my numbers that I didn’t know before. Truly enjoyed the class, your knowledge, accessibility and positivity! And if I have any questions, I know your are there to help in my continued journey.”
“Well, I received some bloodwork back today and my numbers decreased materially! My total cholesterol reduced from 266 to 184 and LDL from 204 to 124. Those numbers reduced so much that they almost don't seem correct.” – but they are!
“Michelle, everyone needs this program in their life. I am blessed to have found you and I am so grateful for all the years you have added to my life! Thank you for everything.”
“If you are hesitating about joining Michelle’s 6 week program, let me reassure you it was beyond any expectations I had and I really wish it wasn’t ending! Everyone should take this course, whether you have a family history of heart disease or not!”
“This course was worth every penny! Michelle’s passion, responsiveness, and community approach allowed me to reduce my stress around food, and live a happier life! Thank you Michelle for doing this.”
“I have found your courses very effective. I am by no means a perfect student but have radically altered my dietary habits and in many ways enjoying this new way of living. I have lost 10% of my body weight and have now stabilized. I feel better and am significantly more active and importantly, much of the fear for the future I felt on getting my diagnosis has dissipated. This condition is now something I have an active role in managing and improving instead of being a passive passenger on the receiving end of medication and monitoring. Michelle, I am deeply grateful for your work.”
“ I completed your early summer 6 week optimization class and gained great information and knowledge for my heart health. I wanted to let you know that I just got my lab results that showed a decrease of LDL from 112 to 46! And my triglycerides 161 to 90! My doctor is planning to take me off of my statin! Thank you for all that you do.”
Yes! Many of my clients will join both the 6 week heart optimization group program and the 1 to 1 coaching in order to reap the benefits of both styles of learning. The group program is lecture-based and community driven so you have the support of other people who are going through a similar health journey. The 1 to 1 coaching provides a personalized assessment, health resource guide, meal plan, and hand-holding support to ensure you are reaching your goals and troubleshooting all challenges that may impede on your success. If you are interested in joining both programs, please schedule a call here to ensure you would be a good fit.
Yes! I give alternatives and substitutes to any recipe that I recommend that has food that you don’t enjoy or eat.
I speak generally about which supplements may be helpful if you avoid certain food groups or foods, but I do not talk about supplements everybody should take since it needs to be individualized.
No problem! All of the sessions are recorded and sent to your inbox right after the lecture. You can watch it at your convenience, and for your lifetime. Many past participants would watch the recording and ask their questions in the facebook group.
If you prefer not to use facebook, that is okay too! As long as you watch the live lectures and if able to attend at least one of them to ask your questions, this program will likely benefit you!
