The unofficial mayor of several local cities, Michelline has been connecting nonprofits, organizations and businesses to the people and resources to make things happen for the last 20 years. She has managed professional associations, advocated on behalf of countless strategic public policy issues in local and regional arenas, and made friends with government officials on both sides of the aisle.

Background

With a dual role at CSC and the NH High Tech Council, which the firm manages, Michelline leads and executes on public affairs strategies for clients in healthcare, higher education and the business world while also overseeing operations and legislative efforts for the NH High Tech Council. Her past work includes serving as the director of public policy and affairs for the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits, the vice president of advancement for New England College, and president of the NH Lodging and Restaurant Association. She serves on the Executive Committee of the Greater Concord YMCA, on the NH Supreme Court Attorney Discipline Hearings Panel, and on the Finance and Governance Committees of the Greater Concord Regional Visiting Nurses Association. Along her way, Michelline was appointed by Governor John Lynch to the 2009 Study Commission on Expanded Gaming, and currently serves on the BIA’s Annual Dinner Committee and various policy committees.  Michelline was named as one of the Boston Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 in 2002, after which she promptly moved to New Hampshire (and eventually turned 40).

Education: Master’s degree in business communications from Emerson College. She is also an associate of the 2011 class of Leadership New Hampshire. She completed undergraduate work at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York.

Passions

Communication with purpose: Michelline is a registered lobbyist in the State of New Hampshire, which means she has the know-how to move ideas and plans through the legislative process, so when she and her team identify a strategic initiative or solution, she can execute on it seamlessly. She does her best work with a daypack strapped to her back, her Golden Retrievers by her side en route up one of New Hampshire’s 48 4,000-foot mountains for the second or third time. She became a member of The Appalachian Mountain Club’s Four Thousand Footer Club in 2014.
