Michaella Kendrick (she/her) is a Virtual Assistant and Career Coach based in Boston, MA. Michaella primarily supports LGBTQIA+ professionals including small business owners, creators, and recent graduates. She draws upon 7 years of experience in media and design and 5 years in LGBTQIA+ advocacy to help her clients design work lives that support them.

LGBTQIA+ folks are often pushed out of public spaces, institutions, and media. We may carry trauma from experiencing inequality, living or working in unaffirming environments, or witnessing acts of violence against our community. Affirm By Design promotes queer autonomy to design our own spaces, create our own media, and heal ourselves and our communities.
