I help clients align their business goals, content requirements, and technical ecosystems to engineer usable and sustainable architectures. 

Michele is an information management consultant specializing in taxonomy-driven content strategy. She has more than 20 years’ experience working with organizations across various industries, including Harvard Business Publishing, EA Games, and the Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR).

Michele takes a holistic approach to information and content management, drawing from a multidisciplinary background in programming, IA/UX design, information science, and publishing. She is skilled at guiding clients through the entire content management process: from creating high-level strategic roadmaps through development, implementation, and migration to ongoing support and training.

Prior to joining Dovecot Studio in 2012, Michele was an independent consultant focusing on web development projects including large scale migrations, platform integrations, and implementing taxonomy-driven IA designs. She also co-founded, managed, and administered Wikitravel (now Wikivoyage), a Webby-winning open source travel guide.

Michele has contributed a chapter to “Taxonomies: Practical approaches to developing and managing vocabularies for digital information” (Facet Publishing, 2022). She is also a regular guest lecturer and occasional course instructor at McGill University, where she earned a Master’s in Library and Information Studies with a specialization in knowledge management.

Michele enjoys staying up to date on open source projects, such as Drupal and the Wiki community. In her spare time, she tries to find time to improve her language skills – both natural (at the moment, French and a bit of Mandarin) and computer (Python, Javascript, etc.).
