Wow two years have passed already?!
Thank you to those who applied. The position has been filled.
Brody Miller is currently Michele’s assistant but is starting graduate school for Economics in August and sadly will have to say goodbye, after a lovely two years. Here is what Brody has to say about working as Michele’s administrative assistant:
“Boy did I have big shoes to fill when I first began in the Fall of 2017 (Ally Whitelaw, Michele’s previous assistant), but I immediately felt supported by Michele as I learned my new role as her assistant, technical advisor, furniture repairperson, and graphic designer. I felt that my work was validated by Michele every day, and very quickly I grew to feel that I was a partner in the business with her. My goal was to be the best assistant I could, so that Michele could focus on being the fantastic nutritionist that she is. Along the way I learned many useful administrative skills, but I was able to grow most as a result of the responsibility Michele placed upon me. I know that this job has made a huge difference in my life, allowing me to find out new things about myself and inspiring me to find something that I was passionate about, to the degree that Michele is passionate about nutrition. Michele has been a fantastic boss, a good friend, and an excellent presence to be around every week.
The qualities which have made me most successful in this position have been my attention to detail, a desire to work hard for Michele and the patients she serves, as well as the flexibility to accomplish any task Michele may ask of me.
Along those lines, someone who would do well in this job would be curious about nutrition, yet would bring their own complementary strengths to the office. They must have a strong sense of ownership over their work, but also be able to complete tasks as directed by Michele.
This is an excellent job and truly a unique opportunity.”
Wow! It sounds like working for Michele must be GREAT!
