This Jacksonville, Florida native found her passion for championing the dreams of small business owners, organizational leaders and creatives while living a world away in an African war zone. Intrigued? Find out more of what I'm about here.

I'm Michele– a business educator, brand designer, & creative strategist for creative brands & businesses, & the amazing entrepreneurs who run them. 

War zone meets board room, purpose meets profit, story meets strategy, I still believe mascara is a survival essential and espresso is a food group. Most of all, I believe your story matters because you matter. And I am cheering you on,
