Her Story

Micah loves being able to work in the creative field. Micah joined Working Within as an Associate in May 2021, initially responsible for developing the company’s online presence through social media assets and digital content production. Since then, Micah’s project management expertise has developed, earning her the Chief of Staff position. Micah facilitates the onboarding of new Working Within team members, manages day-to-day production operations for the Working Within podcast, and coordinates research efforts for our consulting clients.


Prior to joining Working Within, Micah gained experience as a Writing Intern for online media publication, Nuance Magazine, where she conducted interviews of music artists and executives, developing articles from their conversations.  As a Writing Intern, Micah also produced a feature story for the outlet’s annual Summer Issue. Her other communications experience comes from working as an Artist Marketing Coordinator for fashion activism brand, Humanize My Hoodie, where she wrote and published artist biographies. Micah was also entrusted by the co-founder of Humanize My Hoodie to create key marketing components for the organization’s Homework Hotline, a tutoring service designed to assist young children with academic work through tutoring phone call sessions.


Micah is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. after being initiated in the Fall of 2019 and received her B.A. in Journalism & Mass Communications from the University of Iowa. She also earned the Certificate in Entrepreneurial Management through the Tippie College of Business at Iowa. Aside from her sorority, she was a member of several different student organizations during her time at the University of Iowa including the Black Student Union, SCOPE Productions, and the Young, Gifted and Black Alumni Committee. She also held a position on the executive board for women-centered organization, SistaSpeak.


Micah currently resides in the Quad Cities area of the Midwest, although she plans to relocate soon. In addition to her role at Working Within, she works in the financial services industry. In her free time, she loves to travel, spend time with friends and family, and listen to music.
