As a pioneer into new forms of learning, Michelle helped found the field of professional coaching in Australia in 1997 and became a leading voice forging developmental and transformational coaching worldwide.

She has co-authored two international handbooks on coaching, is featured in 10 books and sought out as a leading voice in the field. She has coached thousands of individuals locally and internationally.

Within Equilibrio, the first business Michelle found in 1997, she and a team of behavioural and developmental coaches work personally & professionally with entrepreneurs, co-founders, investors and boards.

As a researcher she has led a world first study into the attitudes and motivations of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs and business owners. This research formed the foundation for Fingerprint For Success, a global technology platform and community that assess and benchmarks entrepreneurial motivation in founders and teams.

Birthed out of her own personal experience with an aggressive life threatening brain disease, Michelle’s personal cause and mission is working with otherwise ‘incurable’ diseases by developing advanced coaching methodologies and the latest discoveries in neuroscience to facilitate well-being and even complete recovery.
