Please join us to hear Chelsea share her journey from Senior Philanthropic Advisor directing the Vermont Community Foundation’s Mission Investments to COO of a mission-driven staffing agency connecting some of Vermont’s top employers with individuals in need of a second chance. Chelsea will share her experience, what led her to make the leap from the philanthropic world to the for profit world. And more recently, how she’s currently working with Jenny Kassan, a recent VT WIN speaker.
Chelsea Bardot Lewis is the Chief Operating Officer at Working Fields. She is inspired by the values of the recovery community, and works to incorporate them into the culture of Working Fields. Lewis joined Working Fields from the Vermont Community Foundation, where she advanced the Foundation’s mission investments and economic development grantmaking. She represented the Foundation on the Boards of the High Meadows Fund and High Mowing Seeds, and served on the Working Fields’ Advisory Board since its inception. Previously, she led the Business Development section at the Vermont Agency of Agriculture. Throughout her career she has been energized by supporting the growth of social enterprises. She lives in Waterbury with her partner Nate and two spirited kiddos, Jack and Will.
This is a great follow up opportunity to Jenny’s event on May 18th to learn more about her work.
