About Michelle

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with degrees in both public relations and print journalism. An avid storyteller, I have written and edited for a variety of local, regional and national publications. As a public relations professional, I have experience working with a myriad of clients, including nonprofits, schools, small businesses, products, and more. While I call Phoenix home, I have garnered success on several national media campaigns for a variety of clients. Currently, I am the public relations coordinator for Duet: Partners In Health & Aging, a Phoenix-based nonprofit that helps older adults and their families cope with the challenges of aging.

An expert on “both sides of the fence” (journalism and public relations), I believe that everyone has a story to tell—I have the creativity and drive to tell it. In particular, I’m passionate about community journalism and helping local businesses and nonprofits. When I cover a story, I do so with journalistic integrity and skill – when I help businesses and other organizations with their public relations or content needs, I do so knowing what the media want and need, creating client results.

I was recently named one of the state’s top young communications professionals, too.
