Michelle worked with the Kroc Institute in Colombia for 3 months, monitoring the implementation of the Colombian Peace Agreement. She also supported the team with professionalism and relate-ability in designing and developing our strategic development plans. Michelle's support was integral in navigating the complexities of a team that has grown exponentially in a short amount of time.

Michelle creates an environment that we don't often get to inhabit, one with possibility that before had felt like the beaten-path, although not an open path. Putting movement and love into her "summoning", I couldn't honestly think of anyone who wouldn't benefit.
Ethan Knight, Executive Director - American Gap Association
Michelle does a wonderful job creating a space, asking the questions, and providing prompts to let the creative juices flow. [She] then connects the dots aligning passion with purpose.
Drew Edwards, Executive Director - Carpe Diem Education
With gentleness, humor, and intuition, Michelle led our group in productive brainstorming that opened us up to new possibilities in both profession and personal ventures.
Jana Griffin - Music Teacher
Michelle helped staff identify personal passions that they can bring to our work. The activities were fun, engaging, and inspiring. Michelle was well prepared and clearly passionate about her work. I would highly recommend her.
Cassie, Staff - Bradley Angle
Michelle's workshop was incredibly helpful. She was able to create a safe space for us to come together and talk about our shop dynamics. She heard what we needed from the workshop and tailored it to meet those needs. I came away with concrete plans for how I can better uphold the Safer Space Agreement at Bike Farm.
Momoko - Bike Farm
Michelle struck an ideal balance between assertion and reception, making sure everyone was heard and engaged, but facilitating a consistently relevant conversation with a meaningful arc that gave us our own take aways, based on our own feelings and needs.
Andrew Shaw-Kitch - Bikes for Humanity PDX
The thing I took away from [the workshop] was the clarity that I could absolutely make my goal happen. I had the steps right in front of me. Thank you again.
Andrea B., Marketing Coach - Lightbox Communications
Michelle does an excellent job of breaking down each activity into a step by step process, enabling participants to gain a clear understanding of what they are lacking or needing in order to gain control of their goals. In just 2 hours I discovered the missing piece that will possibly help me realize my current goal.

Having worked for the same company 15 years, I needed my resume updated. Michelle was quick and efficient. She had my resume back to me in less than 24 hours and it looked great!
Christine J. - Assistant Retail Manager
Michelle produced a well-written cover letter and an outstanding and comprehensive resume at a very fair cost. Her professionalism was remarkable and her quality of work was very impressive.
Julius G. - US Armed Forces
Michelle updated my resume a few years ago after I had been unemployed for a period of time and the layout and information was concise, organized and easy to read at a glance. Due to my "new" resume I secured several interviews in my job field and landed a job I was well qualified for and duly compensated. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a professional and well put together resume.
Catherine B. - Mosaic Glass Artist, Educator
I am a budding business owner and looked to Michelle for some road-mapping. She leads me to set my own goals by listening to my journey, asking insightful questions, and being sensitive to my fears. She holds me accountable to my goals in a way that is empowering and not crushing. With her on my team I am becoming more successful and confident. Thanks for bringing clarity and organization to the very chaotic world of entrepreneurship, Michelle!
