Assistant Director, Outreach and Corporate Education
I care. That's why I hold a MA in Philanthropic Studies. Connection is important. I think we should do life together, which is why my career continues to excel in engagement. Finally, I am curious! That's what fuels my desire to learn, grow, and spend my free time reading and writing.
"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot." Eleanor Roosevelt
In addition to my work in the Office of Community Engagement at IUPUI, I would love towrite children's books based on stories my mom told me, and biographies for successful, Midwestern women. Coming Soon: SarabellaMichele.com, a space to feature lifestyle articles and cool things to do around Indianapolis.

Franklin was the place where I met life long friends, was able to travel, made connections between art and science, and learned a lot about who I am and what I want.
IU Lilly School of Philanthropy
MA in Philanthropic Studies, Philanthropic Studies
After spending some time thinking about what I imagine my career would look like, I decided to jump into an Executive Master's at the IU Lilly School of Philanthropy. I got super charged learning not only how the art and science of fundraising works, but why people give and theories around the sectors that make our cities and communities work.
