Meet Michelle Skaletski-Boyd
Namaste – It’s nice to virtually meet you. My guess is you’re here because you are interested in getting to know me more and I am honored to get the chance to know you too. Let me start by saying if you are here on referral from one of the many special people in my life who are in the health care and medical fields, please be sure to let me know when we officially speak so I can send a proper thank you.
For now let me share that after working three jobs and interning on the side, I successfully put myself through a four year private college and then spent 13 years climbing the corporate ladder prior to becoming an entrepreneur. This may “sound” glamorous, but the truth is I was a people pleaser and a perfectionist who struggled with not feeling good enough because I was measuring my self worth on outside approval and whether or not I measured up. As you might imagine, this was a recipe for disaster but it did teach me a lot about going within, releasing drama, and choosing peace.
My ego also knows a little something about “gracing” the stage of corporate, non-profit and government agencies because I spent over 10 years with the National Speaker’s Association teaching soft-skills training and emotional intelligence, for as they say, teachers teach what they need to learn most, and this was definitely the case for me.
Since 2009 I have been a credentialed member of the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association® and I can honestly say not a day has gone by that I haven’t been grateful for all of the clients who have allowed me to assist and witness their amazing shifts in personal perceptions and beliefs.
Oh, and one last thing, whether you work with me via a virtual teaching or in-person, I trust my intuition to lead and will always encourage you to find your center and do the same. This is why I wrote my spiritual adventure novel and my three best sellers. You can find more about that here: here
“Graduating cum laude was a very special time for me.”
I was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin and am a Packer fan. (Can you say cheese?)
My two younger siblings and I could often be found building secret hay bale forts with cousins, singing in a community choir, or working at a family restaurant, -and- in my case… always escaping with a nose in a book.
My parents were just 17 and 18 when I was born and always told me that I must either build up my muscles to work in a factory, or build up my brain then go to college if I wished to land a nice job to make ends meet.
Following my truth, I trained my intellect hard receiving several scholarships and grants while working three part-time jobs so I could successfully put myself through school.
After graduating with honors with a Media Communications degree from St. Norbert College-an accredited national liberal-arts school – I ventured into the corporate world trading in my hiking boots for high heels. Mazing my way through a career path, I worked for both traditional and online advertising agencies as well as a Fortune 500 company. My last few years in the corporate world entailed working for one of the nation’s largest privately-held telecommunications companies where I led and managed a regional team of key accounts.
In 2006, after becoming certified as an Accelerated Learning Adjunct Professor in the Midwest, I followed my higher calling and moved to the mountains to teach part-time at the college level. It was then I formed my consulting and educational company.
Through the years I have been formally trained and/or certified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Guided Imagery, Somatic Movement, Stress Management, Reiki, and Accelerated Learning.
Today I live in the Rocky Mountains of Montana with my husband, Steven and our beautiful daughter. As a family we enjoy down hill skiing, motorcycling, and hiking with our two German Shepherd fur babies.
As a best-selling author of the Soul-Felt Words Sequels™ Words for the Soul: Heaven-Sent Life Lessons & Conversations with God and first time novelist of Silas’ Motorcycle Miracle, I enjoy writing in my free time.
