Michele Timmons 

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

My passion is for each youth to thrive, and that's the vision of our organization. In every engagement, we have the ability to be a game-changer for young people. I love working with educational leaders, teachers and youth serving professionals — helping them re-envision how and what they do to support the students they serve.

Michele Timmons

Michele founded EnvisionEdPlus in 2013 with the goal of providing the highest quality professional learning and support to schools and youth-serving organizations in small, rural and underserved communities.  She has authored or co-authored more than $220 million in winning grant proposals. She has worked as part of the U.S. Department of Education Regional Advisory Committee and as a Federal and State Peer Reviewer. Her work addressing the needs of underserved youth and families has received state and national recognition, including from the Ohio Department of Education, the National Summit on Protecting Children, and the Ohio Mental Health Network for School Success. Michele has an M.A. Ed from The Ohio State University along with a High School Principal License and a Comprehensive Social Studies license (7-12).

Michele continues to win grants for her clients, and she creates opportunities for educators and youth development professionals to leverage sustainable resources in their own communities. She is the creator of the EnvisionEdPlus Design Lab, a professional development model that facilitates design thinking practices among educators, employers, and youth experts to help them understand and prototype solutions to challenging educational situations.

Tricia Moore

Chief Operations and Engagement Officer

Tricia has a BS in Journalism from Ohio University, as well as a Career Pathways Leadership certification from the National Career Pathways Network. As a community journalist, Tricia wrote about leadership and education for 10 years before accepting a school public relations position. Like most grant writers, she got her start under the “other duties as assigned” clause in her contract, but developed a passion for initiative design and persuasive writing that led to more than $20 million in awards for her school district and community partners. Tricia’s title changed several times over 10 years as a district administrator, but that “other duties as assigned” clause loomed large. Her leadership and support set the direction for major projects. School construction, renovations, sharing facilities with a community college branch and a local hospital clinic, a 15-district career pathways consortium, and school-based health care.

When my career path shifted from journalism to education, I was fortunate to have mentors with amazing professional networks to help me along. Now it’s fun to be able to leverage my own experience and network on behalf of clients to help each youth thrive.

Tricia Moore

Since joining our team in 2017, Tricia has written, managed and/or evaluated winning grant projects for all types of clients. Clients range from small nonprofit organizations, private schools, suburban & rural school districts to large, urban districts and educational service centers. She has helped with regional business advisory councils and fostering collaborations among school districts, nonprofits, colleges, employers, industry associations, statewide networks, and national organizations.

Kelley Albright

Marketing Manager

Kelley joined our team in May of 2021 while still working on her marketing degree at Cuyahoga Community College, when she was matched with EnvisionEdPlus through the Ohio Diversity and Inclusion Technology Internship Program! During her time as our intern, she was able to get hands on training and real world experience in her field of study. Since joining our team Kelley has been promoted to our Marketing Manager and works on our newsletters, website, social media, and handles all of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of our event registrations.  

Kelley embodies the skills and dispositions we try to develop in ourselves, our clients and our youth. She is a creative problem-solver, fearless innovator and strategic communicator. 

Since joining the EnvisionEdPlus team, I have discovered my love for working with our clients and event planning! It has been so much fun getting to plan LaunchPad 2022 from designing the event signs and decorations, down to organizing happy hour. Meeting our clients in person has also been so great! Watching their progress towards creating more opportunities for the youth they serve is so inspiring!
