Michelle Cole, MA – Owner, Development By Design
Michelle Cole is a builder, although early in her career she didn’t know it. Managing a Counseling Center in rural North Carolina, Michelle noticed that many women she came in contact with were victims of domestic violence. Locally, there were zero resources to serve these families. Michelle founded the Domestic Violence Resource Center of Alexander County, North Carolina by seeking an umbrella organization and working collaboratively to win a grant to fund start-up costs. Michelle has set up successful programs at various education institutions and nonprofit organizations, and today remains a consultant in their ongoing achievement. Her experience with corporate fundraising has been focused on strategy and execution planning that resulted in increased revenue. This was realized through national partnerships, collaboration and a commitment to customer service. Michelle earned her MA degree at Appalachian state University and is a member of Grant Professional Association.
