Originally from Australia, where she worked in Corporate Training and Development, Michelle moved to Michigan with her husband and two daughters in 2011. A competitive high school swimmer and university (where she studied Psychology) rower, she moved to Triathlon in 2008. Over the last few years her involvement in the sport has grown as well as her achievements. Regularly placing in her age group over a variety of distances, it is Michelle’s desire to go further in Triathlon that has led her to Athletic Mentors.
Becoming a coached athlete in 2014 and a member of the Triathlon coaching staff in 2015, Michelle wants to lead others to see what they can achieve. As a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor, her role is a fusion of knowledge, experience and passion.
“The human body is capable of so much more than what we give it credit for and I have enjoyed testing the limits of my body over the years,” says Michelle. “I never believed I could do the things I have done and continue to do. I am excited by what else I can achieve and look forward showing and guiding new and experienced triathletes to accomplish their own dreams.”
