Hi! Thanks so much for visiting whitecoat2whitedress! I’m Michelle, a young professional and new wife based in California. I started this site as a means of sharing my experiences as I establish my career while also exploring other aspects of my life that I’m passionate about – travel, food, and shopping.

I’m an ambulatory care pharmacist specializing in chronic diseases. As cliche as this may sound, I truly feel lucky to have a career that I love and one that can make a real impact on people’s lives. Managing chronic conditions allows me to develop long-term relationships with my patients. Ultimately, my goal is to educate, encourage, and empower them to take control of their health.

When I’m not wearing my white coat, I’m usually browsing through a great sale, searching for a delicious meal, or heading to a new destination with my forever travel companion, my awesome husband. As young professionals, we’ve learned a few strategies that have helped us to dress, eat, and travel well but still manage to build ourselves in the financially competitive Bay Area market.

I hope to share my story and some tips that I’ve learned along the way. Thank you so much for reading and following along in my journey!
