Meet Michelle Longo.

Say hello to our Digital Marketing Specialist.

Setting goals and working towards them isn't always easy, but it's so much better than the alternative.

Michelle LongoDigital Marketing Specialist | Forge3, Ltd.

I was born and raised in New Jersey. I spent most of my professional career (over 20 years) working with insurance agencies and a third-party administrator of employee benefits, servicing clients of all sizes. Somewhere in that time, I decided everything needed to change. I transitioned my career to writing and marketing, and in 2018, my family packed up and moved to Los Angeles. Things have been falling into place ever since.

I first met Forge3 in 2015. I had landed my first marketing job with an insurance agency that was already working with Forge3, and in the three years that I worked at the agency, I grew increasingly impressed with everything Forge3 did—the culture, the processes, the vision, all of it. After leaving New Jersey and the agency job, I stayed in touch with my contact in the hopes they’d keep me in mind if they or their clients needed a freelance marketer. I hit the jackpot when they offered me a job.

When I’m not working, I run an online writing community that features contests, prompts, and writing resources. I’m also working on a memoir and other personal writing projects. I take every chance I get to be outside in the beautiful Southern California weather, hiking in the mountains, or spending time at the beach. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 20 years and we’ve had a lot of fun together. About 18 months ago, I took up martial arts and I’m about halfway toward getting my black belt. I train with my 13-year-old son who recently earned his second-degree black belt (I’m also a super proud mom and I’ll brag about my kid all day if you let me).

My life just gets better every day and working at Forge3 is a big part of that. It’s amazing that I can feel so connected to co-workers I rarely see. This is a great group of people and I’m grateful I get to be a part of it.

Fun Fact

I am always freezing. I’m usually overdressed for the season, wrapped in a blanket, or sitting next to my space heater.
