- It was absolutely wonderful meeting Michelle and having her present at TEDxHouston 2015. Even though I knew she was nervous facing her 100th fear, you couldn't tell. Her talk was tremendously inspiring and insightfully put together. She was beyond well prepared and poured her heart into her message; everything you would ever want from a presenter. I honestly can't say enough good things about working with her as a TEDxHouston speaker. And, to top all of that off, her slides were beautiful. She's a talented designer and brave woman.I look forward to following along on all of Michelle's next adventures.

She made it relevant to our daily lives; the audience left feeling empowered to face their own fears. Her talent shines! Her energy and enthusiasm are undeniable, and her visual designs were absolutely flawless.

- We asked Michelle to speak from the main stage at WDS 2016, and our whole community loved her. As an organizer, I greatly appreciated her attention to detail in taking the time to understand the audience well in advance. I watched her talk from backstage and was impressed with both the authenticity as well as the energy she brought to the whole theater. If you get the chance to welcome her to your stage, don't hesitate!

- Michelle’s presentation at Bayer provided insight to transform employees’ mindset and perspective of their fears, from not even considering taking action to thinking “what’s the best that can happen”. Attendees also understood and learned the power in sharing their own experiences facing fears to encourage people around them to go after their own. Members of the WLI Workplace, Culture and Events team noted attendees continue to share their fear and new motivation to face it.
