Michelle Seidling, PhD, is the CEO and Food Experience Architect at Food Experience Unplugged. She provides food experience coaching and training to help people focus on food in ways that lead to health and well-being.

Receiving her PhD in Instructional Psychology and Technology, and her M.S. in Training and Development helped Michelle focus on customizing training and instruction to meet the learning needs of each individual. Whether providing one-on-one training or hosting a group event, Michelle ensures people come away with a better understanding of a topic and the ability and motivation to apply those principles to their lives.

As a self-trained food coach for over 25 years, Michelle is constantly building her expertise through food research, taking cooking classes and other instruction, and is a ferocious reader of all things food. Her ability to organize and communicate complicated information in layman’s terms has made her a sought-after trainer, writer, and speaker.

Michelle is a military veteran. With over 20 years of service in communications and training, she has served in leadership positions across the United States. Michelle enjoys training individuals and groups both large and small. Her favorite part of training is seeing the Aha! moments come alive with enthusiasm and motivation for the future.

When she is not training or foodie-ing, Michelle enjoys traveling, exploring the great outdoors, and attending art and theatre events.

A little trivia about Michelle
