Highlights from recent work.
Michigan Genetics Resource Center
Website redesign and development
MIGRC wanted a refresh to their website to make it mobile-friendly, a more user-friendly search
functionality, and tied together with a nice modern design. MPHI worked in close collaboration
with the client to identify what data and content needed to be migrated over from the old site and
then implemented a complex but successful data migration. I designed and developed a custom
WordPress theme and built out several areas of custom functionality. The client was very happy with
the resulting website.
Midwest Genetics Network
Website redesign and development
Previously known as the Region 4 Genetics Collaborative, the Midwest Genetics Network needed a refreshed
website to go with their rebranding. Building on a well known identity and previous work, the new site
design provides a refreshed and modern look that's responsive, mobile friendly, and content focused.

The Sudden Death in the Young Case Registry wanted an interactive map to
