They say “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life,” and for Michelle Drewek, that truly resonates with her as an employee at Lessiter Media. “They help you balance work and life so neither has to suffer, and are always in tune with your happiness and heartaches,” she says. Michelle joined the Lessiter team back in 2011 and spends her days overseeing all aspects of the Lessiter Media digital footprint. Outside of the Digital Media department she enjoys kickboxing, reading, puzzles, trivia, road trips, indulging in good food and beverages, being with her fur babies, and spending quality time with her husband and daughters.
Education: B.A. in Journalism & Media Communication, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Favorite superhero: George Feeny and Miss Frizzle. Each has their own merits.
Favorite place in Milwaukee: Our home! More specifically, I love my backyard or "jamming out" with my husband and kids by our stereo. Around town you can find me at beer gardens, farmer’s markets, the parks, our favorite local pubs, the many festivals Milwaukee hosts, any of the local museums and zoo, and being in front of a big TV during Packers games (if I'm not at Lambeau), just to name a handful. There is so much to do, see, eat, drink and enjoy in Milwaukee, it's impossible to pick just one!
Person I’d most like to meet: For purely superficial reasons, Ryan Gosling
No. 1 Bucket List goal: Visit all 50 states
Mac or PC: I’ve converted to Mac since entering the journalism field, but I'm not an Apple loyalist. If you were to ask me Android or iOS, I'd pick Android.
Favorite ice cream flavor: Ice Cream? Chocolate Malt. Custard? Chocolate Heath Crunch. (I worked at Culver’s for over 6 years, so I feel obligated to differentiate the two.)
Favorite quote: “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on.” — Robert Frost
