Michelle has been news manager for IU Communications News and Media since November 2011, editing news releases for IU Bloomington, IUPUI, and the IU School of Medicine. A graduate of Ball State University, she spent the majority of her career as a newspaper copy editor, first at Home News Enterprises in Indiana and then at The Indianapolis Star. She continues to freelance on the side and is often called upon by friends and family to solve their grammar dilemmas.

When she isn’t following U2 around the country and beyond, she spends her time reading, hiking, antiquing, and obsessing over nieces, nephews, and Ancestry.com records. She’s also been known to belt out a few tunes at karaoke.

I am a human stylebook. One of my coworkers always says, ‘I’ve come to Google you.’
