Michaela has been sharing her love for creating for seven years. She started coding websites and blogs for fun at the age of 15. By the age of 16 she was a design pro, published author, and proud receiver of the Carol Santaniello Writing Award. It seemed natural to her to continue on with a career doing what she loved - creating fabulous brands for small businesses. "I'm a firm believer that you can do whatever you set your mind to. If you have the passion, then you can break through anything holding you back. I had my first child at the age of 18, and to most people that meant any chance I had at a good career was over for me. But it actually gave me the willpower to follow my dreams, and make sure I left something behind for my children. Now I get to enjoy every day staying home with them, and doing what I truly love. I'm very lucky for that, but luck isn't what brought me here. It was a lot of hard work. No one is going to know your story unless you tell it. So make sure you're telling everyone who will listen."
