About Michelle McIvor
Michelle McIvor is a communications professional and freelance writer based in Calgary. As the Public Relations and Communications Manager, she is thrilled to share the Gabriella’s Kitchen story.
Michelle is passionate about sharing good stories. Since 2005, she has been a freelance magazine writer and, under her maiden name, Magnan, has written for publications such as Maclean’s, Canadian Business, Chatelaine, Flare, Impact, Profit, Avenue and Reader’s Digest. Along the way, Michelle spent three years as a full-time health and wellness columnist with the Calgary Herald. She has also edited health and wellness guidebooks, been a frequent contributor to websites such as AskMen.com and blogged as half of the duo behind The Toque Girls. Prior to joining Gabriella’s Kitchen, Michelle managed communications for Crescent Point Energy, Canada’s fourth-largest independent oil producer.
In her spare time, Michelle loves tackling hard workouts, cooking healthy meals (but also making time for chocolate because, well, dark chocolate is healthy, right?) and reading through stacks of magazines.
