Hi. I’m Michelle McIlvoy

I am a Professional Lifestyle Strategist helping overwhelmed moms who want to get better at saying “no” to others so they can take back control of their own time and energy and live life fully with more inner peace, improved confidence, and self-compassion.

As a retired military wife and mom of 5 grown kids, I know how exhausting it can feel to constantly put everyone else first because of that unending feeling of “they need me”. As my kids got bigger, I thought I would get more time back, only to find it got even harder to manage my own energy, all while trying to appear that I always had things under control.

This is why I’m so passionate about helping overwhelmed and overworked women rewrite the script of what it looks like to be a thriving mom. If you’re ready to let go of the constant people pleasing and guilt that gets tied to the mom-role and start creating a new lifestyle that allows you to feel confident, present and thrive in knowing you are enough, I can’t wait to connect.
