Michelle Moe Witte began her career as a freelance writer after graduating from Wichita State University with a degree in Communications. As a writer, she realized her passion for connecting with people, and wanting to be able to help more. While it meant a change in course, Michelle followed her instincts and attended Washburn University School of Law. Today, she applies that passion for connecting with and helping people to her legal practice which focuses on civil and commercial litigation, including employment law matters. A self-proclaimed music theatre junkie, Michelle serves as the President of the Music Theatre Wichita board of directors. She is also an active member of the Society of Human Resource Management, the Kansas Women Attorneys Association, and the Wichita Bar Association.
While waiting in line at a convenience store to buy soup for her husband who wasn't feeling well, Michelle witnessed a woman win $1,000,000 with a Kansas Lottery Holiday Millionaire Raffle Ticket! Michelle left with the soup and $.67.
