Mikkell joined Dogwood Health Trust in February 2019 as our Talent Acquisition Manager. She brings over two decades of consulting and client engagement experience from both private industry and the nonprofit sector. Most recently, she was an Executive Search Director for a national retained search firm where she served mission-driven non-profits and foundations.
Mikkell approaches all of her work with an equity and inclusion lens, understanding that a variety of perspectives and experiences enable organizations to be more creative, solve problems faster and gain better understanding to meet the needs of their constituencies. She is driven by a passion to work with organizations who provide access and pathways to success for those who are often furthest away from those opportunities.
When she is not at work, you will often find Mikkell biking on a trail with her husband Mark or out playing in the garden with their cats Maxima and Julianna.
A Charlottesville, Virginia native, Mikkell earned her BA from Cornell University.
