About Michelle

The first time my name appeared in print, I was an intern at an arts not-for-profit. My first byline was a 250-word news brief about a local art event. It certainly wasn’t a feature article, but to me, being a part of the publishing process was exhilarating. The magazine was published by our local newspaper, and the editor’s creativity and dedication to story accuracy was inspiring. I continued writing there about arts leaders, artists, and events, and I started developing my written voice. I spent a couple years at the same company in marketing, development, and special events, but my love for writing remained.

In 2005, I began writing for other community publications including Confident Women, Central Florida Lifestyle, Park Press, and Orlando Woman before taking on book editing projects. My first editing project was helping a Christian philanthropist edit his dissertation into a book; then he recommended me to a local pastor who was searching for an editor. My faith grew exponentially during this time alongside my editing and writing skills. I recently left my full-time position with a Christian self-publisher to focus on personal clients and to offer legacy writing workshops. 

I'm passionate about helping others share their stories, especially their Christian stories.

I can usually be found at my desk with style guides and other writers' resources nearby. When I need a change of scenery, I drive over to work at a beachfront restaurant or stop at a local coffee shop. I'm thankful every day that editing and writing is my profession. 

My full resume is available upon request.
