Authenticity, Bravery, Connection – Michelle Kuei

Authenticity, Bravery, and Connection are what Michelle lives to teach.

Michelle Kuei is a certified confidence & leadership coach who helps leaders to upgrade the internal narratives and inspires them to fearlessly unleash true personal freedom in a fulfilling personal and professional life. By helping her clients redirect their fears, skillfully use their energy, and live with confidence and purpose, Michelle manifests happiness, authenticity, and personal freedom. Additionally, she co-creates with her clients to discover their inner strength and beauty. And, that enables them to be heard, seen, and known. 

Michelle is the author of the new memoir, Perfectly Normal-an immigrant’s story of making it in America, as well as the inspirational illustrated e-book, “Miss Little Musical.” She is a board member of the United Nations Association of the USA Pasadena Chapter, Clinical Pharmacist at USC’s Keck Medical Center and Associate at the Associated Patient Advocates. She is also a member of the National Speakers Association, Area Director of Toastmasters International at District 100.

She’s an experienced professional speaker and highly requested guest to international podcast interviews. 

In her leisure time, Michelle travels the world, most recently to Siem Reap, Cambodia, where she volunteered as an English teacher at a nonprofit elementary school. She is also an avid hiker, photographer, and painter whose watercolors/oil paintings exhibited at the Beyond The Lines Gallery in Santa Monica, California.
