Hi, I’m Michelle! 

I have always been passionate about helping others. I spent 8 years in the community behavioral health field serving families directly in their homes before I started Babies and Brains in July 2020.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and my Master of Advanced Studies degree in Infant-Family Practice from Arizona State University.

I have always loved working with my community. The purpose behind the creation of Babies and Brains was to expand my community to those around the globe. I am so happy to be able to connect with those that I otherwise would not meet in my previous role.

My hope is that the tools, insight, and support that I provide will empower you to parent in a way that aligns with your family values and instincts.

Healthy hydration isn’t just about drinking water. It’s about water PLUS electrolytes.

It makes sense. You lose both water and sodium when you sweat. Both need to be replaced to prevent muscle cramps, headaches, and energy dips.

But most people only replace the water. Why? Because since the 1940s, we’ve been told to drink 8 glasses of water per day, thirsty or not.

Drinking beyond thirst is a bad idea. It dilutes blood electrolyte levels (especially sodium), which leads to headaches, low energy, cramps, confusion, or worse.

This low sodium situation (called hyponatremia) is super common among endurance athletes. The solution isn’t to stop drinking water though. It’s to drink water plus electrolytes.
