Nonprofit Organizations

“I count Michelle Traub as one of the most talented people with whom I have had the pleasure to work. She is an excellent writer; her work is thoughtful, carefully researched and thorough.

Michelle is a hard working, versatile woman who would be an asset to any organization.” – Tricia Caldwell, Communications Manager, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven

“Although I have worked with many skilled writers, it is Michelle’s ability to quickly ascertain the essence of an organization and to create an effective and compelling “voice” for the organization that sets her apart. She has been able to use these skills to write successful grants, compelling newsletters and marketing materials and engaging websites for Women & Family Life Center. Working with Michelle is a pleasure. She is upbeat and enthusiastic, meets or beat all her deadlines, and looks for ways to go that extra mile for any client or employer.”– Peggy Britt, Executive Director, Women & Family Life Center

“Michelle is a talented writing professional who brings a rare combination of creative, technical and strategic skills to communications projects. She recently provided web, writing and multi-media consulting services to the organization where I serve as the communications chief. Michelle’s meticulous attention to detail, knowledge of health care issues and web talents proved indispensable to the communications team, and the overall organization. She is a pleasant and highly motivated person with whom I enjoyed working.” – Janet Davenport, Vice President for Communications, Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut

“…Michelle has also been actively involved in our fundraising efforts. She has created display posters for events, sent Evites, and established Pay Pal links to offer easy payment for donors and clients. She is well versed in using FaceBook as a social media marketing tool and helped us with editing tasks.

Finally, Michelle edited a long and complicated State grant application for our summer program, “Horse Trails to Learning” in 2011. The quality of writing and presentation resulted in the award of a $21,000 grant. She is a superb writer with clear, concise verbal skills.

In conclusion, Michelle has many talents that include design, marketing, technology, and writing skills. I would highly recommend her work. She is efficient and completes all tasks in a very timely manner. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.” – Chris Patella, CEO/Director, Animal Assisted Therapy Services

Educational Institutions

“Michelle Traub’s Culminating Project is testimony to her innate creativity, cognitive brilliance, and skillfulness in the realm of new media development and applications. Her 37-page thesis complies with every single guideline that is included in The Graduate Institute’s publication entitled Perspectives on research. The project is absolutely exemplary with respect to its organization and development. The executive summary is substantial in alerting the reader to the scope and utility of the website design. Moreover, the aims, research questions, and methodology are fulsome and informative. Indeed, Mrs. Traub’s writer’s “voice” is clear, authoritative, and compelling. Her innate ability to craft language that is uniquely descriptive and grammatically and syntactically correct enabled this reviewer to read the thesis with flow, fluency, and a testament to her commitment to the EHH program, its operational principles, and its vision and mission. …” – Andrew Summa, Ed. S, Ph.D, Ed.D., Vice President for Institutional Advancement, The Graduate Institute

During her employment with the College, Michelle demonstrated personal and professional strengths that would be invaluable to any employment situation. Conscientious, diligent, hard working, dedicated and mission driven, summarizes many of Michelle’s attributes. No matter what the task or project, Michelle always fulfilled her job responsibilities and assignments with unparalleled effectiveness and creativity.” – Harry White, Former Dean of Development, Marketing & Enrollment Services, Charter Oak State College

“During the time she was with us, she revised the College website so that it was a marketing, as well as an informational, tool. Her creativity and attention to detail enabled Charter Oak to provide prospective and enrolled students with Web content that was well-organized and written in a friendly, welcoming tone. She also increased our Internet presence, which was and continues to be a marketing strategy for the College. She was very conscientious and although part-time, she was able to complete a large amount of work quickly and accurately. I would highly recommend Ms. Traub for any work related to website development or management.” – Dr. Merle W. Harris, Former President, Charter Oak State College
