Michelle Hurn is a registered dietitian, marathon runner, and USATF certified track and field coach. While practicing inpatient and outpatient care, she discovered a staggering disconnect between knowledge of nutrition principles and subsequent application of those principles. Michelle discovered that patient outcomes are mediated by mindset, even when patients are well educated. Michelle has studied how the mind works, habit formation, and how to transform limiting beliefs. A key component of this program involves teaching clients how to build confidence, erase fears and doubts, and develop sustainable habits. By supplementing personalized meal outlines with positive psychology, this two-pronged approach is markedly effective in helping clients. To schedule an appointment, Michelle can be reached at
