I have known Michelle both personally and professionally for 20 years. Although I am a trained internist and nephrologist who has studied physiology and nutrition, it is always Michelle that I turn to when I need truly expert advice and knowledge in the nutrition, sports, fitness, and exercise nutrition arenas.Stan M.

“Living with Vitality” is an absolutely perfect name for Michelle’s new platform. It exemplifies what she is all about; her vision applies to any age group. Michelle generates this tremendous, creative, and passionate energy… through her visionary work with world-renowned institutions and entrepreneurs.H. Vondell Clark, M.D., M.P.H.

Michelle is an ideal fit because she understands the dialysis business so well and has a tremendous amount of relationships…Unlike most clinicians, Michelle understands the relevant business issues in the dialysis and fitness segments; her clinical credentials would be invaluable in helping target segments of the hospital market.Larry Gladstone

I worked with Ms. Ricker over the course of 5 years on level 1 nutrition programming for a multi chain health club. In that time my organization launched 4 national pilot programs on behalf of companies such as Apex, Body Media, NASM and Visual Fitness Planner, all of which were successful in their national programming. Ms Ricker’s involvement and expertise as an RD as well as her versatile skill set in execution were instrumental to our success. I have also enjoyed her professional ability as an ongoing resource for similar fitness projects over the previous years. Overall, she has proven to be a key component for success in the industry, not mention a great educator on the scientific aspects of the nutrition and supplemental components of programming. I look forward to our continued efforts.Brad Duke, BS, CPT, PES
