About Us


Ms. Michelle Hylton, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, Nurse Practitioner

Welcome to Footsteps to Wellness

Greetings, I am an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) Board Certified (BC) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). I am the practice owner and Healthcare Provider of Footsteps to Wellness. I completed a Master’s of Science in Nursing degree with Honors at Kaplan University and I am board certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

I began my healthcare career over 20 years ago. Soon after my career started as a Nurse Practitioner, I realized in a short period of time just how much of my client’s symptoms and chronic illnesses were related to lifestyle and how little time I had to address it in the “12 minute” insurance based office setting. It was constantly “a pill for a symptom and another pill for the side effect”.

While continuing advanced education in: Functional Medicine, Addiction, Weight Management, Hormone Replacement Therapy, Vitamin Therapy, Peptide Therapy, Aesthetics and travelling the world, I learned that traditional mainstream medicine was only putting a bandaid over a much bigger problem.

Footsteps to Wellness was born in the middle of the global COVID 19 pandemic where I could focus my practice on clients, while taking time to listen, educate, assess, and provide comprehensive, individualized – whole person treatments.

I welcome you to Footsteps to Wellness.


Ms. Michelle
