Welcoming New Staff
Marillac Mission Fund introduces our new Program Manager, Michele Mosley, who started in late September.
Michele Mosley has worked in the not-for-profit sector for the past 20 years and is passionate about improving outcomes for communities through holistic, culturally-inclusive approaches that empower individuals and groups. She comes to Marillac Mission Fund after 14 years of holding a variety of leadership roles in direct practice and administration at Youth Learning Center, and was part of the founding team of The Biome School. Her varied experiences in program development and evaluations, community partnerships, operations, and fund development, along with her experience as a second-generation U.S. citizen, lend themselves well to her new role as Program Manager of Marillac Mission Fund. She is excited to learn and grow with the organization.
Michele holds a bachelor of arts in psychology from Washington University in St. Louis and a Master of Social Work (MSW) with a Concentration in Social and Economic Development from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. She values community service and is active with several groups including: the Nine Network’s Community Advisory Board, the St. Louis Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Black Funders of St. Louis. Originally from Chicago, IL, Michele is a self-proclaimed artist/painter and enjoys live music, travelling, and spending time with her husband, two-year old daughter, and two dogs.
We also welcome Olivia Tisa, our MSW Intern from Saint Louis University, who started in late August.
Olivia Tisa is a student intern pursuing her Masters in Social Work at Saint Louis University. Her experience working with immigrants and refugees in Malta and Italy while studying abroad, brings a unique perspective and interest to her work within MMF’s focus areas. Olivia has a driving passion for social justice and interest in policy, advocacy, and nonprofit management, which she hopes to bring to the international social work field following graduation.
