Michelle Niemeyer Wellness was born from a severe case of lawyer burnout. After more than 20 years of law practice in both law firm and solo practitioner settings, litigation attorney Michelle Niemeyer found herself overweight, unhappy, and unmotivated. Her quest to recover her youthful enthusiasm led to weight loss, physical fitness, and more importantly a keen awareness of tools to maintain focus, address stress and live a more well rounded and healthier life. She learned to thrive! Along the way, Michelle went back to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York and earned her certification as a health coach. Michelle's exploration of motivation, wellness, stress management, neurolinguistic programming and positive psychology continues to this day. Michelle consults with businesses and individuals to help them identify ways to improve their lifestyles, enhancing productivity and happiness while improving their health and quality of life. At a time when overworked professionals like lawyers face high rates of alcoholism, substance abuse, anxiety and depression as well as high rates of divorce and attrition from their professions, learning how to bend time and thrive is a win!
