Associate Director, Communication and Outreach

Michelle Duffey_square

My Responsibilities: My role at the Catholic Conference of Ohio (CCO) is to create and manage communication and outreach strategies to raise awareness of the CCO and empower Catholics in Ohio to act on matters of public policy that align with Church teachings. This is accomplished through media relations, the website, action alerts, newsletters, social media, marketing, and event coordination. 

A Little Bit About Me:  I am a native of Columbus, Ohio born into a large Irish Catholic family with nearly 50 first cousins on my mom’s side. I attended the University of Toledo, earning both a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Master of Business Administration in Marketing. After working in corporate for over a decade, I followed my passion to share the faith and served as Director of Communication for the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) and the Director of Mission Advancement for the John Paul II Project prior to joining the CCO. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, acting like a big kid with my niece and three nephews, and going on pilgrimages.
