Endorsements​

Over the years I have helped hundreds of clients and learners reach their goals. Here are just a couple of testimonials from people I have served.

I have had the pleasure of working with Michele Walker in two very different capacities and highly recommend her in both.
Michele helped rebrand a historic street fair – through the creation of a new logo and rebranding, new energy and excitement was brought to the fair which helped it reach new levels of growth, sponsorship and involvement. The logo was beautifully and skillfully crafted to enhance the mission of this historic event.

Secondly, I had the opportunity to tap into Michele’s website knowledge in revamping a Church’s website that had not been updated in over 3 years. She helped us decide on the WordPress theme, colors and design and addressed the previous coding issues head on. She personally oversaw the whole process of turning an antiquated website into a site that is easily maintained by computer challenged individuals.​
