Who Runs This Thing, Anyway?

I’m glad you asked. I never thought we’d be living in a world where there are such things as “alternative facts.” But here we are, you and me. So it’s important that you know who the heck I am, so that you know whether you can trust what I have to say.

My name is Michele. I’m a copywriter for impactful nonprofits and thoughtful businesses. But that’s not where I started. I actually graduated from law school in 2001, and went on to practice law for over a decade. During my career I was an appellate judge’s clerk, a big law firm litigator, a mediator, an arbitrator, and a government lawyer. (I continue to train mediators for the Chicago Center for Conflict Resolution, which is an amazing place that you should definitely check out.) When my son was born I decided to take a break from the practice of law; that was four years ago. On November 9 I realized that my legal experience and my flexible schedule made me well suited to help people navigate this crazy new world.

So here I am.

And yes, for now it’s just me. That might change, I suppose. But for now, it’s just a singular person who is doing the sifting and the searching and the scripting because I know that not everyone has the time to do it.

I really hope that what I do is helpful for you. Frankly, it’s the thing that has kept me sane.

So, thanks.
