Michelle Zimmermann is one of ChiWIP’s original Directors and is currently also serving as its Secretary. When she heard about the first ChiWIP gathering back in the early summer of 2015, Michelle recalls being intrigued by the idea of a local organization designed to promote and support women in IP. After attending, she was convinced that this was going to be a great organization and has been an active member since then. Michelle views the sincere desire that ChiWIP members have to help each other succeed, and the supportive community that has developed from our members, as the reason she continues to be involved.
