I’m Maureen Michele.

I Help Parents Live Their Dreams.

As a general pediatrician and allergist/immunologist, I have spent my career caring for patients with a variety of acute and chronic health problems. I am a military veteran and mother of three amazing children. I have first-hand experience with being a parent of a child with Type 1 Diabetes. Through my own journey, I have learned that to enjoy the life that I was given even if it wasn’t the life I had planned. I became a certified life coach to teach parents how to build self-confidence and decrease overwhelming emotions creating a calm, meaningful life.
