Coming out announcement

I’ve been dealing with a medical problem for decades that needs to be addressed. The causes are complicated, but the medical solution is well understood. It has already had a significant impact on me that I wanted to share with everyone, by re-introducing myself:

Hi, my name is Michelle Paquette. I am transgender and have been medically transitioning with the support of my physician, therapist, and endocrinologist, along with a team of specialists at Kaiser. This has been an extremely difficult process both professionally and personally, and I ask for your patience and understanding. Please understand that this is not about “lifestyle” or a choice, but about survival. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about my transition, about my being transgender, or just to talk! Please feel free to contact me, and we can chat and get to know each other all over again!

Thank you for understanding.

Michelle Paquette
