Michele Regenold
Sr. Content Strategist - Editorial/Editor of The Grinnell Magazine

As editorial director, Michele oversees content for major publications, such as the Office of Admission's student recruiting materials and web stories on the home page of grinnell.edu.

She leads the editorial team, which includes the internal communications coordinator, the senior writer, and the editorial fellow.
