Okay I've just watched it 101 times now... So beautiful. I love love it so much! The music is perfect for it. Makes me smile everytime.
─ Rebecca, Happy Bride
We hired Michelle to capture footage of our four hour workshop in San Jose, CA. Michelle showed up on time, prepared, set up professionally, and went above and beyond with video-taping spontaneous last minute interviews. The quality was very good.
─ Shelley Johnson, The Losing Coach
We all watched the program last night and so far the feedback has been GREAT! Volunteers loved it and one of the parents called to say it brought tears to her eyes ... Also - a new person sent a donation and one signed up to volunteer. Great exposure for us ... Thank you for doing such a good job for us and Taylor too. You two are amazing.
─ Carol Rathmann, Forget Me Not Farm
Michelle is one of the most creative producers I've ever worked with. She picks up quickly on a concept and runs with it. Her education and background afford her an excellent notion of what is key to a client's success. She is creative with overall idea generation, video production, and graphic design. She is flexible and is never burdened by mundane tasks, even at the last minute! She is a pleasure to work with.
─ Stacey Hill, KRCB North Bay Public Media
Michelle is an excellent videographer and video editor. All of her work has been exemplary, in that she meets all deadlines, is professional, responded quickly when we changed project targets, and produced an amazing video that we are currently using on our website. I recommend Michelle to colleagues who need professional videos of events, as well as to friends for weddings and parties.
─ Lauren Zachry, The Parkinson's Institute
Michelle is a talented producer/editor who knows how to put people at ease in front of the camera. She has an instinctive feel for what makes a good story and will go the extra mile for that one hard-to-get clip or sound bite in order to make the story sing. Making video is a both a creative and collaborative process, and the two don't always mesh. What I found most remarkable in working with Michelle is that in the creative role she is not afraid to argue passionately for her artistic point of view, and she also converts into a great collaborator when the creative takes another direction
─ Lynn Bruno
Michelle was a student of mine at USC. She took-on interesting, complex, and visually-compelling stories that were accepted to be shown on our award-winning series, "Impact". Michelle mastered the art of storytelling and came up with great material. She shot and edited excellent sequences as I might expect from a veteran in the biz. I'm happy to recommend Michelle -- from her skill sets then and especially with her continued professional work now. Simply put -- she gets it.

Full television episode produced for "Community Health Connections."
All over the world, our area is hailed as a food mecca. While we may have some of the finest restaurants, wines, and produce, that is only one part of our food system. Sonoma County actually has three times as many unhealthy food outlets nearby as healthy ones and nearly 20 percent of our adult population is considered food insecure -- meaning they don't always have access to safe, nutritious foods. This episode of Community Health Connections explores our local food system, where our food comes from, where it goes, and what happens to it along the way.

Documentary television segment for "Community Health Connections."
In this segment for Community Health Connections, we highlighted Forget Me Not Farm, a Humane Society organization that uses rescued animals and organic farming as therapy for kids. One in five children in the United States has a diagnosable mental health problem and this farm is an innovative program aimed at helping some of those children. In addition, the farm is an example of upstream investment, a process that aims to engage the whole community in supporting the healthy development of children.

In this segment from Community Health Connections, we visited YouthLink Youth Employment Center, a place that provides teens with opportunities for employment and educational assistance. They help place teens in jobs -- such as summer work with the Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps -- and offer resume workshops and mock interviews. They also run GED preparation courses and match teens with potential apprenticeship programs.
