Founder & President, Michele Root ~ Empowering You!

Michele Root is from the ‘burbs of Detroit (Farmington), MI and prides herself on her Midwest values.  Michele moved to Phoenix, leaving behind her family and friends, to embark on a journey of self-discovery.  Within a few years, she met and married her husband, Ralph, and quickly settled into family life (albeit furr-babies).  Much of their home life was spent with great friends and riding motorcycles on various trips throughout Arizona and California. 


In 2008, both Michele and Ralph joined the American Legion Riders, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts coming together for a greater cause - our active military, their families and our veterans.  A passion was sparked and soon Michele became involved in event planning for the "Riders".  In 2011, Michele was voted the American Legion Auxiliary "Unit Member of the Year" for the state of Arizona and had the opportunity to attend The American Legion National Convention in Indianapolis.  The following year, Michele was elected President of the American Legion Auxiliary for Tempe's Unit 2 (Wm Bloys, The American Legion Post 2) and Vice President for District 12 the following year.  She has been a strong advocate for this amazing organization ever since.


While participating in a leadership program at Landmark Worldwide, Michele was introduced to the concept of coaching and found herself coaching her coach.  She loved it so much, she signed up for the 4-month leadership program again, this time as a Coach.  This step changed her outlook on her life & future and she quickly searched for an accredited school to learn how to become a Certified Life Coach.


Michele took it a step further and enrolled in Southwest Institute of Healing Arts to earn her AOS Degree in Mind/Body Transformational Psychology specializing in life coaching, hypnotherapy, nutrition and aromatherapy.  Her vision is to empower others to embrace their highest potential and live a life of success AND fulfillment, removing obstacles from their path to true happiness.

Since her degree at SWIHA, Michele furthered her nutritional studies and concentrated on Functional Nutrition, and most recently, Auriculotherapy.
