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 the Digital Media department and all aspects of the Lessiter Media digital footprint. Michelle also works closely with the Marketing and Audience Development teams on digital marketing strategy and execution. Outside of the Digital Media department she enjoys kickboxing, trivia, puzzles, road trips, indulging in good food and beverages, being with her fur babies (two cats and a miniature goldendoodle), 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: I love my backyard, the Milwaukee Public Market and various farmer’s markets, summer concerts in the parks, beer gardens, the beautiful county parks, playing pool at local dive bars, the many festivals Milwaukee hosts, museums and being in front of a big TV during Packers games, 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
