Mission and Media is owned by freelancer Michelle Rayburn, whose mission is to advance your mission through story and strategy. Whether that is through your writing, your published book, website content, or digital graphics, she is laser-focused on making sure that your message is clear for your clients. Michelle is skilled at using print and digital media, graphics, and photography to enhance your content delivery, and as an experienced and detailed copy editor and proofreader, she will make sure you put your best professional work forward to your readers, followers, and customers. This isn't a marketing corporation or an agency; instead, each client receives a boutique experience with personal attention.
