Mission

Michaella Kendrick (she/her) is a Virtual Assistant and Career Coach based in Boston, MA. Michaella helps LGBTQIA+ business owners, creatives, and professionals design work lives that affirm them. 

Queer 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.
