About Michele


Bio

I have been a communications specialist for most of my adult life. I was a journalist for many years, most of them with The Hartford Courant. I held many of the newspaper's most prominent writing and editing positions: bureau chief, legislative reporter, chief political reporter, editorial writer and political columnist.

I have been a communications specialist for most of my adult life. I was a journalist for many years, most of them with The Hartford Courant. I held many of the newspaper's most prominent writing and editing positions: bureau chief, legislative reporter, chief political reporter, editorial writer and political columnist. I am adept at both objective and opinion writing styles. I won numerous awards for my work.

After I left The Courant, I formed a communications consulting firm, which I still own. I temporarily suspended it while I worked in the communications office of Trinity College in Hartford, one of the leading liberal arts colleges in the country. I dealt with administrators, faculty and students and wrote and edited press releases as well as stories and profiles for the college's website. I helped students with their theses and also taught opinion writing.

When I left Trinity College, I restarted my communications consulting firm. I am an excellent writer, editor and proofreader. I am also a proficient tutor and am currently helping a relative of mine, who is not a native English speaker, adjust to her classes at a local community college. I am proud to say she is doing very well. I would very much like the opportunity to pass along the knowledge that I have acquired over the course of my career. I would also add that thoroughness and patience are two of my strengths.

Please allow me to assist you or someone you know. You won't regret it.

Proofreading

As I mentioned, I have edited and proofread manuscripts and dissertations. I worked for seven years at Trinity College, where I also used my proofreading skills on a daily basis. Prior to that, I was employed by The Hartford Courant. I was a bureau chief, legislative reporter, chief political reporter, editorial writer and political columnist. In every job, I used my editing and proofreading skills. Most recently, I proofread a manuscript for a theater arts professor at the University of Connecticut. She gave me an excellent review. The reason that you won't see it as a "testimonial" is because I got that job through a company called Thumbtack.
