Michelle Bussey 

Michelle Bussey is Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Community College Foundation and Alumni Relations.  Joining the foundation in 2015 as 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.  

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 board member for Junior Achievement Nova Scotia.  Inspired by the YMCA’s core values of removing barriers and increasing access to learning and services, Michelle is excited to bring her fund development and youth work experience to the table and give back at the community level to those in need.
