Owner/Founder Shari Stein is a born educator. Her seventeen years of teaching taught her keen awareness of her students’ wisdom. And to understand her audience. They educate us as we educate them. Young people push your values to the next level. Shari values vulnerability, honesty, flexibility, and curiosity. That’s when the creativity really flows! Being an educator has prepared Shari for leading DesignTeam+. My motto is ‘fail often to succeed sooner.’ Failure is a gift!

Shari’s volunteer work with the non-profit Friendship Circle and a profound connection with a remarkable young woman she met there marked a turning point professionally. A fortuitous pairing put Shari and Harold Remlinger together on pro bono projects. The two forged a business partnership to create DesignTeam+, where creativity flourishes and compassion overflows.

Shari received her BFA from the University of Michigan and her master’s degree from Boise State University in 2014. Shari is a native Michigander.

Shari exceeds client expectations and is honest when things don’t work. We’ll develop an even better solution and go the extra mile, so they get more than they ever thought.

Work is love! That, paired with yoga, nature, meditation, friends, family, and traveling, keeps Shari happy.

Painfully shy as a child, Shari developed her confidence by facing it head-on – as a child actress. If you grew up in Detroit in the 70s, perhaps you caught her show on Sunday morning television?

Israel is where Shari’s heart is. It’s my favorite place.
