Meet Our Team
Michelle Willis joined the Pathways to Growth team as a writer, reviewer and researcher in March 2019. She has dedicated nearly 10 years to serving the community as the Director of Grants and Proposals for a large nonprofit and prior to that, as the Manager of Research and Grants for a national nonprofit.

Michelle states "I was fortunate to meet Julé at her grant writing seminar. She was and continues to be very generous with her time and advice."

Referring to her clients, Michelle states " The diversity of Pathways to Growth's client base was a big draw for me - it is exciting to work with clients in support of missions that impact the lives of people in our community and beyond." 

In her spare time, Michelle enjoys traveling with her husband and spending time with family near and far.
