The OrangeMoon was founded by Michelle Mitchum  HHP, a native New Yorker, a graduate of Morgan State University, (Baltimore, MD) and the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, (New York NY). She is an educator, having taught Biology, Chemistry and Physics in both New York, and Baltimore City, and has also built a career in health education, marketing and advertising. However, it was her position as the Director of Cancer Patient Educational Programs that allowed her to take a more compassionate and purpose driven approach to shaping her career.

Michelle has a successful history in the healing sciences. She has been featured on Fox Business News, Essence Magazine and is a contributing writer to Heart and Soul Magazine as well as other notable publications. 

In keeping with her mission to continue to grow her career and life with purpose, in 2013 Michelle founded The OrangeMoon Holistic Health and Wellness, to empower people to make intelligent and informed decisions about their health and to introduce and educate clients on holistic lifestyle alternatives.
