Michelle Saenz joined the Clinic in February 2017 as a Program Associate in the Capacity Building Lane. She uses her experience in private and nonprofit finance to provide training, technical assistance and general support to the team.
Michelle is currently pursuing a Master of Urban Planning at Hunter College, where she focuses her work on economic development issues.
As the daughter of a hardworking, single, immigrant mother, the Clinic’s mission is of personal importance to her.
In her free time, Michelle can often be found boring her friends about Iranian neorealist cinema or Russian film.
