The EERC is pleased to welcome Michelle Manthei, Communications Coordinator with the Communications team. Michelle coordinates and assists in the development and planning of EERC communication and outreach activities.

“I love learning and hearing about all the research and great projects happening at the EERC,” Michelle said. “I have been able to meet new people every day, and the personal connections make the research that much more amazing.”

Michelle completed her bachelor’s degree in Communication at the University of North Dakota (UND) in August 2019 and was drawn to her position because it offered the opportunity to directly use her communication skills and knowledge. She previously worked as an Event Coordinator at the UND Alumni Association & Foundation. She started there as a student and worked her way up into a full-time position during her third year of college.

Michelle was raised in Grand Forks and enjoys living close to her immediate family members. She also likes traveling, seeing old friends, and trying new foods.
