    I like that this class gave me ways to think about both my web site portfolio and my work in an organized and logical way and the “guardrails” to keep referring back to make sure I stay on track. It’s just what I was looking for as far as information on starting a portfolio.

    This course was sooooo helpful in getting me focused and on the road to curating my portfolio.

Thanks Michelle!
