Michelle first came to GMRI in May 2014. In her role as Grants and Accounting Manager, Michelle is responsible for grants accounting and contract management, including all related aspects of accounting, compliance and financial reporting.
Before coming to GMRI, Michelle gained many years of non-profit experience in grants and contract administration with local social service agencies, as well as the University of New England. She holds a B.S. in Accounting from the University of Southern Maine.
Growing up on Portland’s working waterfront, Michelle developed her affinity for the Gulf of Maine at an early age. Her family’s business, stationed on Long Wharf, guided deep sea fishing expeditions, harbor cruises, and whale watches. There, she saw the challenges facing our fishermen and community first-hand.
Michelle enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. Most summer weekends, you’ll find her at camp on her paddle board, sometimes accompanied by her dog.
