I’m Michele.

What qualifies me to deliver clarity to you? Experience. Lots of bumps and bruises, a passion for working with teams to capture the big picture, and a desire to help you get from here to there — once we clarify where there is.

My business experience is varied, from corporate banking to becoming a third-generation owner of a family business. While the corporate world can be intense, there’s nothing quite like having your parents’ retirement hinge on your success to motivate you.

Later I became involved in opening a community food co-op with some of the most dedicated volunteers you’ll ever meet. I thought I knew a lot about business, but building one as part of a grassroots effort is where I truly earned my business chops. It’s a good story that even includes pulling rabbits out of hats.

I have lots of stories because I’ve walked hundreds of miles in your shoes. I started my consulting business (formerly called Vivid360) because I’m passionate about translating my experience into others’ success.

After coaching and consulting organizations for nearly a decade now, my practice has evolved from following formulaic methods of business planning and strategy to offering customized solutions and approaches tailored to the specific needs of an organization. 

Hiring a coach shouldn’t be a daunting experience. It should be collaborative and supportive. Together, we’ll create a plan that works for you.
