A Message from Michelle

I’m a bit eclectic, which is why I always have some sort of artistic thread in everything I do. If you need a word of inspiration, a faith lift (It’s the best I can offer since I’m not a plastic surgeon), or a creative idea? Then I hope you check out my blogs where I celebrate my eclectic side and hope to inspire you to celebrate yours too. 

I'm proud to be a creative Jill of all trades. I love the artistic part of graphic design for social media posts or website banners, but I also love the techie side of working on websites or editing a book to make sure it's ready for press. I'm happy to spend an afternoon out on my deck writing on my own next book project or creating strategy for a client. As a speaker, I love to teach, but even more, I enjoy the heart connection with my audience. Whatever your need, I'd love to work with you!

Through my freelance business, Mission and Media, I help clients advance their mission through story and strategy. For some, it's literally a story - a book they're ready to see in print. For others, it's telling the story of their product or business through great website content, social media posts that engage people, or through building awareness through public relations. I merge writing expertise with marketing experience to make your story shine.
