25 Women in Leadership: Michelle Nielsen Ott
August 24, 2021
An academic librarian, Michelle Nielsen Ott is the Director of Library Services at Methodist College.
When the pandemic required the college to close down, the library physically closed down but virtually the college library stayed open and they increased our virtual services.
The library added a chat feature and added some online rooms for students to come in and get assistance so that even though they were at a distance they could still give them the information that they needed.
Her mom was a volunteer in her community and continues to be -- she sets the example for Michelle to be involved.
Michelle just did the Richwoods to Peoria St. Jude Run. Her team raised over twenty-one thousand dollars. She’s also involved in Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
“I was really surprised when I found out I was nominated,” she said. “I was really thrilled -- It was very exciting.”
