She lives in North Dallas with her husband and two lively boys, where she homesteads, teaches sourdough baking workshops, and enjoys the outdoors. Before having children, Michelle worked with a chiropractor, whom ultimately introduced her to homeschooling and holistic health. In recent years, she has become passionate about researching neurodiverse development and learning styles yo help aid her in homeschooling. Michelle strives to teach life skills, the joy of exploring nature, and minimalism. As a home educator she enjoys leaning into a slow and simple lifestyle that allows plenty of time for family connection, self-paced growth and learning, and the opportunity for her boys to be truly wild & free.
