Keeping Busy, As Usual
Three years after graduating from Ithaca College, Michelle Cuthrell (December ’04) spends her days with her Army husband in the rainy suburbs of Seattle, Washington, where she works as a personal chef, chauffer, nurse, nanny, maid, tutor, playmate, teacher and professional motivator — and that's just for her 18-month-old son, Connor. Outside of life as a mother and military wife, Michelle works from her home office as the editor in chief of Good Catch Publishing, a Portland-based Christian publishing company, and volunteers her services at Fort Lewis Army post and Capital Christian Center. Between toddler gym classes and military functions, Michelle has also completed her first book, a memoir about dealing on the home front with the unprecedented 16-month-long deployment of her husband to Iraq.
