Hi, I'm michelle! I analyze and distill ambiguous challenges into core themes that pave the way for creative design interventions.
Values I live by
I'm intentional about forming meaningful, sincere relationships with others wherever I go.
I strive to make thoughtful decisions that are backed with intention, purpose, and rationale.
I approach leadership with an angle of consideration and understanding. I believe leadership does not have to be polarizing to be impactful.
I strive to be adaptable while remaining cautious about changes, taking the time to fully consider new ideas before dismissing them.
I'm currently exploring various mediums including songs, advertising, short stories, and novels.
I've recently reconnected with my dance background and have started rock-climbing as a way to challenge myself both physically and socially.
I'm passionate about teaching and have been finding fulfillment with my part-time roles as a swim instructor and teaching assistant.
In the summer you can find me anywhere that there's water — either at the beach, in a pool, or out on a boat in the ocean.
