about me

My Vision

No more boring or ugly websites that don’t do what they’re supposed to do.

My Mission

To create beautiful websites that reflect the unique identity of each client and help them achieve their goals.

My Commitment

To demonstrate integrity and care in every aspect my work.

Michelle Wuesthoff, owner and designer

 

I take great pride in my work, and I count it a privilege to be able to combine all the things I love to do – art, design, writing, and development – in one field. I’m a firm believer that every detail matters, and I take great care to make sure my clients receive something that is beautiful, functional, and representative of who they are and what they’re trying to communicate.

Communication is actually one of my strengths, and I love helping clients improve their own communication and connect better with their audiences through their website.  I absolutely love what I do.

 

In addition to my work as a web designer, I am a blogger and the author of Grafted In, Leading Your Orphan Heart to the Spirit of Adoption. I’ve been married to my best friend for nearly 30 years, and we have 5 beautiful children (plus one through marriage) from 3 different continents. Last but not least, I’m the completely smitten dog-mom to Maxie Mae, our Borador puppy.

What I bring to the table:

I developed a passion for building beautiful websites long before I decided to make it my career. In fact, I came upon it by a somewhat circuitous route. But as it so often goes, the skills and experiences I’ve picked up along the way greatly contribute to my overall portfolio:

Artist

I was a fine arts major in college (UConn), and throughout my life, I’ve maintained an interest (as well as a side-hustle) in painting, graphic design, interior design, and photography. Having a new website to design reminds me of getting the Crayola “Big Box” of crayons as a kid – I get that excited! 

coach

I am a Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) and have spent hundreds of hours working with clients, helping them to set goals and achieve them.

Author

I’ve received in-depth training from Michael Hyatt and Jeff Goins in the areas of blogging, building websites, and writing in general. Both teach techniques and processes that have proven results. Consequently, I’ve run a successful personal blog, and I am a published author, as well as a writer for several online publications.

Program director

I am the program director of an NGO (non-governmental organization) in Africa, and I help oversee the organization’s mission and develop its programs and its school curriculum. I have made 7 trips to Uganda and have worked with women and children there for over 10 years.

Developer

In addition to countless hours of learning it on my own, I’ve received over 500 hours of instruction in web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Node) as well as 100 hours in digital marketing.

Are you ready to get started?

A good website gives visitors the content they came for and a Design that makes them want to stay and look around.
