My name is Michaela J. Lawlor and I am the owner of New Sun Rising, LLC. I received my Master of Fine Arts in Creative and Professional Writing in 2021 from Western Connecticut State University where I studied screenwriting and journalism. In 2019, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion Studies with a concentration in Wellness Management, also from WCSU. I achieved my CHES (Certified Health Education Specialist) certification in 2019. I love being active, and I enjoy the outdoors; I mountain bike, run, hike, golf, ride horses, and practice yoga. Along with health and fitness, I share a passion for the arts. I love photography, videography/filmmaking, graphic design, drawing, painting, music, reading, and writing, which is why I'm so thrilled that I can channel all of my passions through New Sun Rising.

The rising sun is symbolic of a new day; a new day to be a better version of oneself.  We live and breathe by the light of the sun, with each day giving us a fresh slate. Being a morning person, I do my best work bright and early. I feel energized when I watch the spectacular sunrises outside of my window, and it inspires me to create something new every day.
