MICHELLE SMITH, CNP, MSN, WHNP-BC
Certified Functional Medicine Nurse Practitioner
I have been practicing as a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) since 2012. I am also a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and my passion is helping women navigate their hormone-related concerns. I became frustrated with the limitations of the conventional medicine/managed healthcare model: I felt like I wasn't truly helping women with the brief time slots I was given and insurance limitations were frustrating, which is why I decided to open Elizabeth Rose Women's Wellness (named after my grandma). Here we have the opportunity to educate, inspire and empower women to feel their best!
I am an Air Force veteran, who served 22 years active duty, all in the nursing/healthcare field. When I retired from the Air Force in 2016, I returned to my hometown, Canton Ohio, to give back to the community where I was born and raised. Married with 2 young sons (if I had a girl I would have named her Elizabeth Rose), I enjoy continual learning, gardening, hiking, going to the beach and just being outdoors!
