Meet Michelle, our new weekly contributor.
Michelle is one of the owners of Sculpt Health and Wellness, Riverview. She has been married to Ray for 29 years and is the proud mom of Sean, Patrick and Meaghan, and mother in law to Meaghan Mclauglin-Collins. She was a stay at home mom for many years and entered the workforce in 2001 as a support worker at Moncton Employment and Training Services. While working full time she took courses at night and by correspondence and graduated as a Human Services Counselor from NBCC. She worked as a counselor for several years until leaving her position in May 2015.
While off work, Michelle volunteered her time with Sculpt Health and Wellness in Moncton, and in the process developed a greater desire for helping people to live their best lives. Michelle became more passionate about working with Sculpt so when the opportunity came up to bring Sculpt to Riverview, it seemed like a perfect fit.
Michelle was never into athletics as a child, but decided to make a change in her life at age 40 when she started training in Tae Kwon Do, after seeing how it was benefiting her two youngest children. It was during this time that she first met Jason Capson. She faced many challenges and went way outside her comfort zone, but she never gave up and completed her testing for her Black Belt on December 6, 2009.
During this time, Michelle was introduced to the world of bodybuilding by a friend and attended seminars by Kai Greene and Flex Lewis. It was at one of these seminars that she renewed her friendship with Jason and learned about Sculpt for the first time. A month before her 50th birthday, Michelle decided to compete in the Atlantic Classic Bodybuilding show the following April. It was during this process that she learned the importance of proper nutrition and positive accountability in achieving one’s goals. That is what she is planning on bringing to her clients at Sculpt Health and Wellness, Riverview.
Michelle believes that learning is a lifelong process, and has certificates in Lay Ministry and Spirituality from St. Francis Xavier University. She feels that these courses, along with the skills she developed in her work as a Human Service Counselor and her life experience will enable her to work with the whole person in body, mind and spirit. It’s never too late to start.
