Thanks to our team, our clients and our partners


It feels like summer just ended, but somehow it’s the end of November and I’m writing our annual Thanksgiving blog. And while we recognize that the Thanksgiving holiday is founded on a problematic colonial mythology, we still believe taking a break to recognize the things we are all grateful for is well worth our time.

This year has been both incredibly challenging and rewarding for our team. It’s been filled with hard work, key milestones and both personal and professional growth across the board.

We truly appreciate the opportunity to work with clients who are expanding healthcare access to rural communities, protecting the Great Lakes fishery, improving the microchip supply chain, enhancing the state’s education system and more. I know it’s cheesy, but that old saying that it’s not really “work” when you love what you do very much applies.

We consider ourselves beyond fortunate that our entire MW team not only excels at their jobs but are also great people. Our firm would not exist without their talent and dedication.

The same goes to all of the partners who help us along the way. No small business can do everything, so to all of our vendors who support us with web design, print production, video, IT support, and more – thank you for helping us help our clients to make this world a better place.

As we take these next two days off to be with friends and family, please know that all of us at Martin Waymire are so thankful to work with such a stellar group of people.

Thank you!
