Mychelle is an incredible worker and colleague. She’s extremely talented and skilled in both inter-personal and technical skills. She’s always willing and able to pitch in long term or at a moment’s notice, and she’s beyond capable in all aspects of project management and development. I can’t recommend her more highly.

Working with Mychelle was a pleasure from the very beginning to the end of the project. She was able to bring all of my crazy ideas together in one clear and concise website. If she didn’t know the answer to one of my questions, she was quick to research the topic and provide me with a solution. She is patient, easy going, and she possesses all of the skills necessary to deal with creative, high maintenance, and hard to please individuals such as myself. I would highly recommend her work as she has been such an asset to my own business in the technology field.

Mychelle has been a pleasure to work with. She’s clear, supportive, and patient for non techy people like me! Her work is outstanding, user friendly, and customized to what I was looking for. I highly recommend Firelink!

Mychelle Blake was recommended to me approximately one year ago to assist the United States Dog Agility Association with website content and design. She continually provides excellent and interesting content for our audience five days a week as well as building and redesigning event websites and managing social media content and contests for us on a routine basis. She has been a huge asset for us and is responsive, knowledgeable, efficient, helpful and friendly. I am confident she will provide the same level of service and knowledge to your organization.

Annie De Chance, United States Dog Agility Association

Right from our initial conversation about the concept of my website, I knew Mychelle was the perfect choice for my project. She was receptive and truly understood the vision of my company. Her responsiveness to addressing any changes that I requested during development far exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with the quality of service and product and highly recommend Mychelle!
