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:
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!
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.
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.
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.
