Style Weekly recently recognized Michelle Nelson in its latest class of "Top 40 Under 40." Michelle is the Chief Financial Officer of The Community Foundation and a leader committed to the nonprofit sector. She brings personal and professional attributes that complement her knowledge and grounding in the finance work of community foundations.

In 2009, Michelle joined TCF as Controller and since has earned her position in senior leadership of the organization. She oversees important finance functions including audit, tax & regulatory filings, operational accounting and budget development.

She has served on the CARITAS Board of Directors since July 2009. In her time as Treasurer, she has been key in stabilizing a merged organization, putting CARITAS on firm ground with a positive trajectory.

"Michelle is one of a kind -- smart as a whip, steadfast, innovative and always thinking of ways to improve both the financial health as well as the visibility of the organization...and she does that with a calming demeanor that is very atypical of someone who crunches numbers all day! She always presents with a smile and a twinkle in her eye like she's keeping a great secret."
- Karen Stanley, Executive Director, CARITAS

Michelle also serves on the board of the Midlothian YMCA and is an active member of AICPA, VSCPA and FAOG, a national network of Financial Officers that serve in the field of community foundations.

Join us in congratulating Michelle in this well-deserved honor!
