Meet Michelle

I’m a registered nurse, as well as the voice, content creator, + photographer behind Healthier Steps. I share gluten-free + plant-based recipes inspired by the full flavors of the world. These recipes have come to fruition as a result of my own personal health issues, but the flavors are a nod to my Jamaican heritage as well as my world travels.
