About Holly Michaels

Hi! I'm Blendtec's resident Registered Dietitian. I spend much of my time at work developing fun new recipes for our incredible blenders. I've built my career around clinical and community nutrition, as well as research and a love for making healthy and tasty foods!

Nutrition is a deep passion of mine; I love finding ways to improve health and wellness through the foods and quantities we consume. I learned at a young age the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. As a child, my oldest brother was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, which prompted my interest in nutrition. The subject fascinated me so much that I studied nutrition in both undergraduate and graduate schools. I grew up cooking with my mother and became very fond of creating foods that are healthy and delicious.

In my free time my husband and I enjoy rock climbing, canyoneering, fishing, camping and just about anything else you can do outdoors in Utah. I also love to quilt, crochet, and read when you can pry me away from my blender.
