Michelle M. Coppel, MPH, RD, CHES
“My goal is to empower, encourage and support my patients in achieving the best health possible. Coming from a family with many healthcare practitioners, I grew up with a desire to help people and a passion for education. Pairing this with a love for food and an appreciation for how our bodies work, this was clearly the perfect career path for me.
“I love interacting with people from many walks of life and learning about different cultures, practices and beliefs. It is a great joy and privilege to celebrate with my patients as they reach their goals in improving their health. I am passionate about helping patients thrive as they reach their health and wellness goals through individualized education and counseling. My goal is to improve their nutritional status while complementing their daily lifestyle, nutritional needs, medical and economic backgrounds.”
