Administrative Assistant

Connect with Michele

Michele Knutson is the first voice on the phone for most of those who call Neuger Communications Group, and she’s the first one to greet our Northfield office guests. The Neuger team also prides itself on hospitality, and Michele champions that cause with all. It’s a good thing she brings both years of organizational experience and a love of people to the position!

She fills a role that provides more administrative support to those who work directly with clients. She is also charged with developing and managing systems to improve our cost-effectiveness, and of course, keeping all of it well organized. (So, if you are someone who likes to organize your sock drawer, then Michele is someone who organizes all the sets of socks in the house and makes sure no singletons come out of the laundry – ever!)

Before raising her family in Northfield, Michele worked as a paralegal for two large law firms in the Twin Cities, spending a significant amount of time inside the offices of a large multi-national client on document organization and management. She studied legal writing and research, business organization and other topics at the Minnesota Paralegal Institute after graduating first from St. Olaf College with a bachelor of arts degree in English and music.

In her spare time: Michele is an avid gardener, loves entertaining with her husband and enjoys some soloist work as a mezzo-soprano. This apple did not fall far from the St. Olaf Choir tree!

iTunes or Radio: Doesn’t matter – if it’s blues, jazz, soul or gospel, she’s all about that sound!

Neuger likes: Michele loves working in downtown Northfield, where she’s part of the action overlooking Bridge Square. She likes getting to know the clients by voice and face and giving them a warm Neuger welcome – be sure to greet her back!

Integrity is about standing behind everything I do – the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s about taking ownership of my responsibilities, working hard and being part of the team that makes Neuger Communications Group thrive.


Excellence lies in the details. It’s what you do when you don’t technically have to do more. Whether it’s working out a difficult piece of music or going the extra mile for a client, what you do when no one is watching is what makes the difference.


My biggest success to date is raising four humans. It requires immense amounts of patience and perseverance, nerves of steel, thick skin and an enormous sense of humor. Let’s be honest, if you can get through a snow day with four kids, you can be successful in most anything you set your mind to.
