As Senior Coordinator of Strategy & Operations, Michelle (she/her/hers) works cross-functionally with all departments to improve alignment across the Social Innovation Forum. She plays a key role in shaping, streamlining, and standardizing SIF’s internal operating procedures-- particularly those around financial systems, database administration, and performance measurement.
Michelle joined the Social Innovation Forum in early 2019 as the organization’s Development Coordinator. Prior to joining SIF, Michelle gained project management experience in the operations department of Children’s Literacy Initiative, a national nonprofit which aims to increase literacy rates in low-income K-3 classrooms. Her volunteer experience as an adult literacy tutor motivated her to coach first-generation students of color towards career and job search readiness with Project Basta. Michelle is excited about SIF's hands-on approach to learning, collaboration, and connection.
