Optimal Brain Health

crop michelle wrap

Hi. I am Michelle Gillette, owner of Thrive + Fly Coaching.  

I’m a Certified Life Coach and an Optimal Brain Health Coach with multiple certifications in Early Alzheimer’s Prevention, Memory Training and Brain Health– passionate about sharing the latest findings in mind & body wellness, functional medicine and nutrition, and positive psychology.

My focus on brain health includes:

  • Optimal Brain Performance
  • Workplace Wellness
  • Early Alzheimer’s Prevention
  • Women’s Brain Health in Midlife
  • Increasing brain health awareness amongst teens and young adults
  • Life hacks and Cooking Strategies for a Healthier Lifestyle
  • Customizable programs

I am deeply committed to the practice of inspiring wellness: getting multiple generations excited about their potential “healthspan.” I do so by distilling down volumes of research  to present the most effective, targeted lifestyle hacks that promote optimal brain health. This includes troubleshooting to help make the implementation stage of healthier lifestyle hacks, both doable and sustainable.

My coaching style is non-judgmental and warm, but also pragmatic and solution-oriented. It is not a “one size fits all” approach, but rather one that honors each person’s individual uniqueness and set of circumstances, with great respect given to the concept of bio-individuality.  In other words, while there may be a set of well-researched “Best Practices” established by experts,  and I will most certainly share those,  I will also advocate strongly for each person to better understand an honor their own body/brain’s needs, guiding them and empowering them to take charge of their health in the process.
