Who's running this place anyway...
Hey there! I'm Michelle, commonly known to friends and colleagues as Mitch. I started FiredUp Nutrition as an online resource, when I realized there was a lack of nutrition and wellness information specific to our First Responders community.
I am a Nutrition and Dietetics Technician, Registered, as well as a federal agency wildland firefighter. I'm deeply passionate about both nutrition (proud science geek here) and fire management. FiredUp Nutrition is my way bridging my passions, and serving the community that serves others, rain, shine, or smoke!
I'm a huge outdoors lover- I work to protect it, I love being surrounded by it, and when I'm indoors, I'm usually thinking about it!
I believe travel is important- domestic and/or international. It opens your mind, gives you fresh perspective, and allows you to see things you may never again see. Push outside of your comfort zone always.
I have a love affair with coffee. Especially dark roast and espresso. Coffee will always be better than tea, you can't change my mind.
I'm forever in motion. Seriously. I have been hyperactive since birth, and while you may not notice it initially...you will:) Throwing myself into a workout gives me mental focus, improves my overall energy, and sometimes, actually tires me out!
Reading is another love of mine, so if you have any great book recommendations, I'm all ears!
