I’m Michele Muffoletto, and I'm so glad you're here!
I am the owner and facilitator here at The Wanderers' Nest, but I'm also a wife, animal momma, coffee lover, best friend, educator, sister, and gardener.
My experience is diverse, from program management and non-profit work to serving as a Peace Corps volunteer and a classroom teacher.
I hold a Master's in Teaching and a Washington State teaching certificate. My certifications in the Human-Animal bond (animal-assisted interventions), horticulture, and ecopsychology have led me on this beautiful path of working with humans, animals, and nature.
Why I do what I do...
Life is hard sometimes. You get stressed and overwhelmed.
You deserve some time and a safe space to process emotions and things going on in your life. You deserve a space to laugh and feel light, to be present.
This is what I do.
I hold space for you to laugh and breathe again.
I'm by your side to support you while we interact with the goats or play in the garden.
How I do what I do...
I am an empathic facilitator who understands the importance of social and emotional development, self-care, and the benefits of being more mindful.
We'll take a few sessions to explore together... maybe pet some goats, hug a dog, plant tomatoes, or just sit by the pond, soak up the sun, and talk.
The goal is to support what your heart needs that day.
Interested in learning more?
Michele is amazing. Her communication skills are excellent; empathetic, great listener (and observer), with a genuine care about the individual she is working with. Her knowledge and professionalism makes her a credit to the industry.
I breathe in a way I do not in my normal day-to-day life; deeper, more carefully, with more smiles and with admiration for what Michele has created and is willing to share.
The term “self care” gets thrown around quite a bit and I did not put much stock into it until I almost had no choice. Michele provided me the opportunity to understand the value of self care and mindfulness.
Michele is kind, compassionate, and flexible when you are setting your goals about what you want to accomplish while you are here.
Thank you Michele for allowing me an opportunity to experience this space and focus on mindfulness. I think we could all use TWN in our lives.
Michele provided me with the time and the space to get to know the animals and play in the dirt.
