about me

My Vision

No more boring or ugly websites that don’t do what they’re supposed to do. Content that goes beyond information to connect, convert, and inspire.

My Mission

To create beautiful websites and engaging content that reflect the unique identity, voice, and message of each client to help them achieve their goals.

My Commitment

To demonstrate integrity and care in every aspect my work.

Michelle Wuesthoff

 

writer + 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 one of my greatest strengths and I love helping clients improve their own communication and connect better with their audiences through their websites and writing.  I absolutely love what I do.

 

In addition to my work as a web designer and freelance writer, 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 30 years, and we have 5 beautiful children (plus one through marriage) from 3 different continents. Last but not least, I’m a completely smitten dog-mom to Maxie Mae, our Borador.

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 have developed two aid programs in Uganda aimed at empowering women and orphans. I’ve done everything from creating the programs themselves to implementing plans and marketing them to supporters here in the U.S.

Developer

In addition to countless hours of learning it on my own, I’ve received hundreds of hours of instruction in web development, content writing, copywriting, and graphic design.
