About

Michelle BarberThis website is a mix of musings on marketing practices, living a good life, travel, books, art, and so much more. Welcome! Here’s a little more information about me:

I’m a freelance marketing professional based in central Vermont, although sometimes I’m a “digital nomad,” traveling when all my work is online. I’m originally from Detroit, Michigan, and have also spent time living in Tennessee and Kentucky.

I graduated from Murray State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and German, and a minor in Multicultural, Class, and Gender Studies. After college, I moved to Vermont and founded the Norwich University Service-Learning Program, building bridges between academics and nonprofits.

Eventually, the world of digital marketing caught my attention. I was serving on a nonprofit Board of Directors and also building them a website and considering their larger digital presence. This was when MySpace was on the decline and new companies like Facebook and Google were emerging. It was very exciting!

As a result, I completely changed my career by freelancing for friends at nonprofits, leveraging that experience into both full-time work and more freelance and consulting engagements in the higher education, nonprofit, and business sectors.

Along the way, I’ve chronicled some of my personal adventures, like visiting 20+ national parks, skydiving, and taking the food stamp challenge.
