Workshop was a Huge Success

“The taste workshop facilitated by Michele was a huge success among our members. Her presentation was informative and included information that was valuable to RD’s who work in a variety of different areas of nutrition. The presentation was followed by an interactive workshop which allowed members to taste firsthand the effect of salt on the flavor of food.”

“Michele created innovate ways to outreach and share information with physicians and other health care providers as well as patients and employees. The high expertise she demonstrated, along with her outstanding presentation skills, assisted in helping patients as well as staff embark on behavior change that would enrich their lives.”

Dynamic Speaker

Michele is a committed professional. Her presentation at the Hawaii Dietetic Association Meeting was the most well rated of the entire program. It connected the local with the world concern for using what we can produce in our local community and be sustainable. She shared recipes, food products and great visuals to make this a dynamic presentation. I would recommend Michele as a dynamic speaker and superior nutrition expert

Excellent Teacher

“Michele is an excellent teacher, provides hands-on experiences for her students and makes each session unique and enjoyable. She emphasizes that food should not only be healthy but taste good and is able to adapt her recipes to particular needs and/or constraints of the individual student. Her classes are well organized, fun and she makes it easy for students to make healthier choices when preparing simple, easy to fix meals.”
Bobbi Presser, Executive, Clinical Integration, Scottsdale Health Partners

Using Flavor to Inspire Change

“Michele was very knowledgeable about ways nutrition professionals can use flavor to motivate clients and inspire behavior change. The material was delivered in an organized, easy to understand manner. Her topic was well received by our audience, who greatly appreciated the unique view of nutrition she brought to our conference.”

A Refreshing Perspective

The philosophy that Michele brings to the Taste Workshop is so unique these days, but it makes so much sense. Why live in a world of deprivation and food rules when there are opportunities for good food that is good for you. I love her philosophy!
