Come Hear How Michele Found Her Professional Path After 25 Years as a Mother and Full-Time Volunteer
Before returning to the workforce, on top of being a mother to my two biological children and one adopted child from Nigeria, I was using my skills in a variety of unpaid non-profit roles. My passion has been helping organizations and individuals make a difference in the lives of others; particularly those less fortunate.
What prompted me to return to the workforce is that on some levels, due to the work I was doing and the time I spent doing it, it felt like I really hadn’t left.
My title is Director of Impact Philanthropy for the United Way of Coastal Fairfield County. I think of myself as a strategic thinker, fundraiser, and connector.
I work with a team of entrepreneurial and passionate professionals who think creatively to solve the problems that exist in Fairfield County. Our impact work is centered around working collectively with members of the community, governments, and businesses to knock down the barriers to opportunity.
My life has changed in a number of ways since returning to work. First, I have had to learn to juggle family, work as well as on-boarding in a remote environment. And second, I am learning and meeting people who are passionate and changing lives in a myriad of ways on the grassroots level. I am listening and growing and hopefully, helping to make a difference.
