WDRT news hound.  I do so voluntarily.  
I promise I will never call my polling numbers fake news. 

Michelle was born and raised in a small Wisconsin town. After a journey that took her to Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Belize, and back to Minnesota, she finally settled in Viroqua in 2018 with her husband, Chris, and their four children. 

Michelle has a natural curiosity of people and their stories and is thrilled to be amongst so many fascinating people in the Driftless region. She is looking forward to Conversations and getting to know her neighbors who call this area home.
