After moving to New York City and finding inspiration in the health and wellness world, she deepened her culinary interest, learning as much as she could about nutrition. When her first of three boys was born, Michelle was lucky enough to take a year off from work to spend with him and of course, make all his baby food herself.  

Fast forward a couple of years and Michelle was back at her high-pressure job working typical New York City hours. With her second son now ready to eat solids and refusing to feed him jarred baby food, Michelle found herself using valuable weekend hours pureeing baby food instead of spending time with her boys. It was time for a career change: Michelle left her corporate job to launch the country’s premier baby food nutrition plan delivery service, Little Spoon.

Michelle believes strongly that every child deserves the most fresh and nutritious food possible. Now, with three healthy little foodies Pearce, Rylan and Brandt, Michelle sees Little Spoon as the perfect opportunity to continue her mission and bring fresh baby food to growing children nationwide.

In her spare time, you can find Michelle hanging with her boys, running in Central Park, traveling the world and culinary adventuring around NYC.
