Michelle Hoar

Michelle is the Director of Publishing and Advertising for The Tyee, overseeing business development, advertising, sponsorships, and working with the rest of the fabulously talented team on strategic initiatives and ongoing site improvements. With The Tyee since its beginnings in 2003, Michelle has dabbled in almost every aspect of the business, other than editorial. You can see her one attempt at writing below (other than proposals, reports, and memos)! That was enough for her.

Previous to The Tyee, she worked for a number of environmental and social justice non-profits in a communications capacity. Her chief interests are online media and community-building, partnership development, and social change movements.

When not at The Tyee, Michelle is busy being the mother of two young daughters, digging in the dirt, or sleeping. One day she hopes to engage in other leisure activities she used to have time for too.
