Publisher Article


Dear Kendall County Woman reader,

One of my favorite parts of publishing this magazine is the privilege I get to not only meet, but tell the stories of some of the more interesting people that call Kendall County home.

Lisa Michelle is one of those people.

What an amazing story of struggle, trauma, addiction…and ultimately redemption, strength, faith, and vision. Her story of trauma in her childhood, through addiction and a “rock ‘n roll” lifestyle, and ultimately to becoming the founder of a non-profit designed to assist young ladies in breaking free of sex trafficking is truly a jaw-dropping story that is made for a movie.

And all of it headquartered right here in our wonderful community! Enjoy!

From there, we have a myriad of content designed specifically for you, local women. Our ever popular “Young Entrepeneur” feature, articles on furniture trends, fashion, and even a piece to help you plan for your children’s summer camps this summer. We hope you find this issue engaging, informative, and relevant.

As always, I’d like to encourage you to send in those article ideas! Know of a local woman with a great story? A local business owner doing great things? An upcoming event that we should know about? Don’t be shy! We’re here to tell local women about people and events that they need to know about, so send us an email and let’s start a conversation!

As we enter the spring season, I hope that you enjoy the warmer temps, the blue skies, and that you truly get out there and enjoy all of wonderful features that make Kendall County such an amazing place to call HOME.
