Michelle is a single parent of two amazing sons, whom she adopted from Guatemala when they were babies. As a School Psychologist and a Licensed Educational Psychologist in California, Michelle has over 25 years of experience working in education. She specializes in consultation, coaching, and program development.

Her background is strongly aligned with the vision of NurXur. She has experience working with parents in groups and in 1:1 situations and understands the impact that school experience can not only have on a child but on the family system as well. Michelle’s goal is to help parents build their toolbox, complete with its smooth roads and potholes and welcomes helping others navigate their journeys.
