Shirley Michl, IHC, ACC, CPCC
Shirley Michl is Owner and Principal of Intentional Wellness, a health, wellness and life coaching company. She began her career as a Respiratory Therapist working for ten years in a clinical setting. A change led to a career in business as a leader and organizational effectiveness consultant focusing on developing leaders, teams, and organizations within large corporations. Her work in Human Resources involved a great deal of coaching executives and high-potential leaders. She witnessed first-hand how powerful coaching can be in transforming people to reach their potential. This led her to complete an intensive certification program with the Coaches Training Institute. Wishing to focus further on health and wellness, Shirley studied and completed her certification in integrative health coaching through Duke University's Integrative Medicine program. Her expertise in executive, health and life coaching has prepared her to help a wide range of people.
Her mission is to empower people to integrate mind, body and spirit in attaining and maintaining increased wellness in their lives. Because health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and impacts every aspect of a person's life, nothing is as important as helping her clients to achieve optimal well-being and maximizing their potential.
Shirley graduated from Indiana University and is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Texas. She lives with her husband, Chris, in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC. Here you will find her outside enjoying nature, hiking, biking, or tending to her organic garden. She also enjoys cooking, traveling, practicing yoga, knitting and creating jewelry.
