Digital Services Coordinator

Michelle is WUWM’s Digital Services Coordinator. She is responsible for all things digital - from overseeing WUWM’s digital platforms to managing WUWM's online and social media content.

She is also behind many special projects at the station. Michelle coordinates Bubbler Talk, a series that uses the Hearken platform to engage WUWM’s audience in the reporting process.

In partnership with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, she helped create the Across the Divide event series to foster civil conversations around divisive issues. 

Michelle was also part of the team that created the award-winning web project, More Than My Record, an offshoot of WUWM’s Project Milwaukee: Black Men in Prison series. More Than My Record allowed those who were formerly incarcerated to tell their own stories.

Michelle was involved with Precious Lives, a series on guns, kids and how to stop the violence in Milwaukee. In 2016, she was named station collaborator for Precious Lives: Before the Gunshots, which was part of AIR’s national Localore: Finding America initiative. Through that, came Precious Lives: The Live Show, a live performance series with which Michelle was deeply involved.

Before being named the station’s Digital Services Coordinator in 2014, Michelle was an assistant producer for Lake Effect (2007-2008) and WUWM’s Web Marketing Specialist (2008-2014).

She holds bachelor degrees in Marketing and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
