Michelle Shin

Special Assistant

Michelle is a bicycle urbanist proactively working to change people’s interactions with their built environment in a way that enhances every individual’s quality of life. Michelle was always passionate about environmental justice, and she explored this issue by working with Tompkins County’s regional food systems from both non-profit and for-profit sectors.

Through studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, and her environmental policy coursework on public transportation financing, she recognized the critical need for greater private and public sector partnerships in tackling social and environmental issues. Michelle was attracted to Quantified Ventures for being at the forefront of mending this gap while yielding measurable, tangible outcomes. She is currently assisting with administrative, marketing, and operational tasks.

During her free time, Michelle loves to read, go on bike rides and nature walks, write, and create short films.
