Feel confident and calm when planning your next event
Michelle will “loop in” the many moving parts of your event to achieve success, while centering relationships and inclusivity.
You have an event to plan but don’t have the bandwidth to tackle it alone.
Your event is coming up and you don’t know where to start. You or your team are busy with a million other tasks and the capacity to plan your event with care isn’t there. You know what you want it to look like and more importantly, you know what you want your event to FEEL like. You are struggling and time is ticking.
Stress is high and your event feels like “one more thing”.
Often we say we want our events to be inclusive to a broad range of people but we don’t know what needs to be considered to remove as many barriers to participation as possible. We want our events to feel worthwhile and welcoming but we fall back on old ways of doing things and don’t employ curiosity and consider how people will experience our event from a variety of perspectives.
The outcome is stale, and underwhelming.
Hi, I'm Michelle
As a self-proclaimed events geek, I love to study, analyze, and then make a plan to perfect events of all types and sizes with an emphasis on relationship building and inclusivity!
I provide a variety of event services such as event planning, event management, and vendor coordination. Know you need help but not sure how? No problem–let’s figure it out together! I can meticulously plan and design an event to achieve your desired impact, thinking about the participants’ experience from multiple angles. I can provide on-site management and coordination so everything flows smoothly, and issues are addressed as they arise quickly, quietly, and efficiently.
I am known for having a compassionate leadership approach, excellent on the spot problem solving skills, and an approachable, calming presence. For over a decade I have demonstrated success in non-profit leadership, event management, fundraising, volunteer management, and community building. I’d love to hear about your event inspirations and help make them a reality!
How we'll work together
Transform event stress and uncertainty into celebration and confidence
Each event is unique and Michelle can help every step of the way.
Yes, I’m happy to. Each collaboration is unique. Let’s have an inital conversation to see how I can help.
Absolutely. I have coordinated vendors and been part of a team curating vendors for large scale events across the USA and as far away as Costa Rica–it’s amazing what you can accomplish with technology! I’m also open to traveling in order to offer on-site event support and management. Let’s talk about what you have in mind!
Each event has unique circumstances, scope and demands. An agreed upon fee will be set upfront and written into a contract. There are no surprise invoices at the end for my services.
Yes. The percentage is negotiable, but generally an agreed upon amount is payable two weeks from signing a contract outlining desired services and conditions.
I would rather leave weddings to the people who specialize in, and are passionate about weddings! I will do (and have done) milestone events for clients, like a significant birthday.
Inclusion is important
Certified in and passionate about Inclusive Event Strategy, Michelle is happy to work with you and/or your team to review your event plans and practices through a lens of inclusion. Exploring what true hospitality means and what intentional choices can be made so more people can enter your event feeling at ease & welcome.
