Michelle Bussey 

Michelle Bussey is the Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Community College Foundation and Alumni Relations.

Joining the NSCC Foundation in 2015 as the Director of Development, Michelle led “Make Way”, NSCC’s first province-wide fundraising campaign. It surpassed its original goal of $25 million – raising more than $33 million to support students and support impactful programming.

Michelle holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Mount Saint Vincent University, a Masters of Public Administration from Dalhousie University, and has professional certification as a Change Management Practitioner.

She believes strongly in lifelong learning. In keeping with this philosophy, she gives back as an artsVest mentor, volunteers for Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and is a board member for Junior Achievement Nova Scotia.

Inspired by the YMCA’s values of removing barriers and increasing access to learning and services, Michelle is excited to bringing forward her expertise and give back at the community level to those in need.
