Michele Frey to replace long-time ED Jessica Engel

Announcement from President Waffenschmidt

After an extensive search, the Lycoming Law Association has hired Michele Frey to replace Executive Director Jessica Engel.

LLA members may know Michele from seeing her at LLA events, which she often attends with her husband, LLA member Christian Frey. She also is the current President of the Lycoming County Paralegal Association.

The hiring committee reviewed resumes from a number of qualified individuals, and conducted interviews throughout October. The committee unanimously recommended Michele's hiring because of her unique set of skills that fit well with the executive director responsibilities. Her hiring was approved by the LLA Executive Committee during a special meeting held on October 23, 2014.

Michele is a graduate of Roger Williams University, Rhode Island, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She majored in political science and minored in marketing and creative writing. She also attended one year of law school, before returning to Lycoming County with her attorney husband.

For the past 10 years, Michele has been employed as a paralegal at Lepley, Engelman and Yaw, where her experience mirrors her soon to be new responsibilities as Executive Director of the LLA.

Michele will begin her new responsibilities on November 10, and is enthusiastic about her new situation. "After working as a paralegal for more than ten years, I am looking forward to my new responsibilities as the director of the Lycoming Law Association. I intend to put forth the same hard work, dedication and enthusiasm that Jessica Engel has devoted to the LLA."

Current Executive Director Engel will continue on the job for several weeks to assist in training.
