Making friends in Jamaica

Making friends in Jamaica.

Ah, but she isn’t afraid of a challenge or to getting her hands dirty! Twice this past year, she traveled to remote areas of Jamaica and Panama to build water systems and even roads. Her passion for the volunteering brought her professional skills to us. As she says, “the non-profit world is close to my heart. So ‘why not’ make it my work too.”

While recently employed at Ripon College she raised $4 million dollars! She will focus on the greater Fox Valley philanthropic efforts and co-lead the Major Gifts Committee with Pat Exarhos. Her goals for the year include building relationships, generating partnerships and raising funds to support local initiatives and national disasters.

Michelle graduated from UW-Oshkosh and earned a master’s degree at Marian University. While she grew-up in Markesan she now resides in Neenah.
