Bespoke Solutions to Scale

Intentional Communications, Beyond Marketing

You’ve got those big goals, the little goals, and the goals that haven’t yet become goals. So many things to be done, but you don’t have the clarity or bandwidth to turn those goals into action.

You’re in just the right place, heart-centered visionary.

Because being a passionate dreamer shouldn’t be the thing holding you back from making your dreams a reality and sharing your passion with YOUR people.

Communicate Intentionally & Connect Authentically.

Authenticity requires more than a cookie cutter strategy.

It lights me up, increasing our clients’ visibility 👁️ by artfully merging their unique stories with strategic marketing. I believe in nurturing culture and community.

Jessi Engelke

I love creating systems 💻 and procedures that are accessible, effective, and efficient. I’m both a strategic thinker and implementer, able to switch my focus between big-picture vision and granular details easily. My favorite color is green, I love sci-fi and jigsaw puzzles. My partner and I live in Kirkland, WA, with our 9-year-old schnauzer mix named Dori.

Diplomat, Queen Maker & Executive Coach

International 🌍 collaboration was the backbone of my career for over 2 decades, but my journey with Ellyvated has brought new meaning to my passion. From the heights of diplomacy to the heart of empowering entrepreneurs. Now I use my diverse cultural experiences as a CCK and as a diplomat to help our clients thrive in their fields and beyond.

Meaningful and authentic ✨ connections fuel me. I’m a TCK (third culture kid) and neurodiversity advocate. I love to travel, learn about new cultures, and taste new cuisines! 🥘 
When not Ellyvating, you’ll find me fueling my love for global collaboration by watching K-dramas, reading Chinese novels, taking naps, and developing my skills 😆.

 I’m Elly or Mishelle, for not-short,

Enneagram 1. ISF J-A. Libra Sun & Aries Moon.

I’m a foodie, travel enthusiast, lover of pilates (reformer), neurodivergent entrepreneur, family-oriented, and a TCK. I’m humbled to have been featured in Business Insider, Authority Magazine, and numerous other media outlets.

I grew up wandering the world, giving me a unique OBM perspective. I have a passion for cross-cultural collaboration and inclusive community.

I love learning new skills, being creative, and investing in my self-development. I earned my BSc. in Biology and a Master’s degree in Nursing and Healthcare Leadership. I’m also a certified ADHD VA, a certified DNK VA, a verified ClickUp consultant, and an accredited online business manager (OBM) to other TCKs and neuroinclusive entrepreneurs.

After spending the better half of a decade in corporate, I made the leap to live the life I truly wanted. I decided to use my years of operations and project management experience (and all my creative energy!) to help YOU accomplish YOUR big dreams and transform YOUR visions into action and impact.
