Whether your brand is 3 months young or 30 years old, you have a unique set of challenges to connect and continuously re-connect with your customers. I help you find your story, craft your message, create your images and set the framework for you to share it with the right people.
My authenticity and how I genuinely care for other people. My laugh. My hunger for travel and my obsession with stories in the form of photojournalism, documentaries and biographies.
You have a wonderful product or service but humbly admit you'd be best served with marketing guidance and business focus. After nearly 20 years of experience in ad agency, communications and marketing leadership roles, I started Indigo Marketing, a boutique marketing consulting firm serving Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.
I'm equally left- and right-brained. I see possibilities but simplify the big picture for you.
I even built this website.
Whatever you make or provide, you do so because you have an incredible gift and a desire to serve the world. My hope is that together, we make an even bigger impact in your world -- no mater how large or small. I don't take that lightly and work incredibly hard and smart to make your business better.

Things I'm Proud Of
Pardon my dust while my clients keep me busy!

You're smart and savvy but if you're truly honest with yourself, you're muddling through the day-to-day -- rushing to the urgent at the expense of the important. You're busy but you need more traction. Not more grunt work. Not more guessing.
I share your same challenges, and I approach your business needs objectively, without judgment.
If you're still reading this, you might be my kind of client...
It is very important and helpful, due to the nature of my job, to be able to work with account professionals like Michelle. You want someone with the right mix of work ethic, resourcefulness, grace under pressure and presence enough to see the big picture. Michelle's got all of those things and I know when we get to work together on a job -- and that's a lot -- that she's going to cover all of the bases and help make my job that much easier.

The Adcom Group
I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with Michelle and her team at Kalman & Pabst for nearly three years. She has been an absolute pleasure to assist, always open to new ideas and very dedicated to her work. A true professional and a wonderful colleague.
"Dedicated, true professional."
Michelle exceeded my expectations like nobody else I’ve ever worked with. As co-owner of KP Photo, I trusted Michelle to own, develop, and run our sales and marketing function. Michelle’s thorough, collaborative, and moral character was exemplified to an extraordinary degree as she helped us manage her transition out. I told her several times that “I didn’t think one in a million people would be as thorough and caring as she has been”. This is just who Michelle is, plain and simple. I trusted Michelle with a large part of my business for years and I would do so again in an instant. I know that anyone who is lucky enough to work with Michelle will come to the same conclusion.
"Exceeded my expectations like no one else."
