Most recently, Grace served for eight years as Director of Institutional Partnerships at The Trustees, and she previously served five years in senior development positions at Earthwatch Institute. She holds master’s degrees from Simmons School of Management and Boston University and a bachelor’s degree from Macalester College in Minnesota.

Michelle Soares Vanslette of Wayland joined SVT as our Director of Finance and Administration in January. Michelle brings a wealth of experience in finance, management, and accounting to her new position.

Michelle comes to SVT from FAIRWAYiQ in Waltham, where she has been the Director of Finance and Administration for five years. Prior to that, she spent seven years as Controller for the nonprofit YWCA in White Plains, New York. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Binghamton University.

Grace and Michelle have both hit the ground running and are already making valuable contributions to our work. We're looking forward to being able to hold in-person gatherings again so you can meet them in person!
