Michelle is executive editor at the St. Albans Messenger, where she has worked for nearly 10 years. The Messenger was Michelle's first reporting job, although she has long had a passion for both the written word and community service. Working for the Messenger allows her to combine both. Outside of work, Michelle avoids people in favor of books, the exceptions being her spouse, her teenaged son and the various teenagers who seem to sprout from the couch at regular intervals.
