Ticking Time Bomb - 4 Fatal Mistakes Women Over 40 Make
November 3, 2017
Hosted by Michelle Beck
Remember when turning 40 was considered being “over the hill” marked by a symbolic tombstone engraved “RIP” on top of a birthday cake? Today, turning 40 is more synonymous with “running up a hill” especially for women in this age bracket who tend to be at their peak of busyness. Surveys and census data show more women over the age of 40 are starting families, getting married (for the first or second time) and are at the pinnacle of their careers. But could running at such a fast pace at this age lead to fatal mistakes when it comes to your health and longevity? Natural health expert, Dr. Christine Horner, author of “Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty” says there isn’t just one cause of aging, but rather many factors that simultaneously contribute to the overall aging process, however she says the silver lining is that we all have tremendous influence on our own health and longevity, no matter what the genetic lottery has dealt or how bad your health habits were in your 20s and 30s.

Michelle is a 2-time, 9-year survivor of breast cancer. In 2017, she began volunteering at Breast Friends of Oregon, and in the process found support, encouragement and a tribe of women who understood exactly what it is like to hear the words “you have cancer.” This changed her life forever.
Michelle’s early career was spent as a paralegal and then as a C-Level Executive Assistant for entrepreneurs and start-ups. Organization and details are her jam; everything has its place and “rules” are to be followed. But, after becoming a stay-at-home parent and two breast cancer battles, all her rules went out the window!
Her second cancer journey led Michelle to a new career path at Breast Friends. In early 2019, she was hired as the Patient Programs Assistant where she made herself indispensable. She is now embracing the opportunity to host the Breast Friends Cancer Support Network.
Michelle is a fierce breast cancer advocate. She is working on a book to tell her story and loves to speak to audiences about how to move forward in the face of life’s trials. Her blog, “I Never Liked Pink” allows her the platform to, as she says, “overshare” the things she’s discovered on life’s journey. The good, the bad and the “What the F??” Michelle enjoys exploring with her husband Nate, son Jackson and 2 dogs in their travel trailer She loves reading books, watching movies and is obsessed with true crime and paranormal podcasts.
