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.Michele Small Deeds Done

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. On November 9, 2016 I realized that my legal experience and my flexible schedule made me well suited to help people navigate this crazy new world.

That was more than five years ago.

And like you, I’m still here.

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

So, thanks.


p.s. – have other questions? A thought to share? A story to relay? I’d love to hear it. (Really – I love hearing from all of you!) I’m always available at hello@smalldeedsdone.com, on Twitter at @smalldeedsdone and on Facebook at @smalldeedsdone.
