Michelle Reyes Aleti
Communications and Development Manager
Michelle Reyes Aleti joined Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia in late 2021, bringing her two decades of experience in both marketing and education to bolster the organization’s outreach. She managed a number of businesses at Procter & Gamble (Gillette, Venus, P&G Beauty), developing and implementing operations and marketing strategies to help grow the brands in North America and globally. She has also served as a marketing consultant and advisor to a number of US-based consumer brands and area independent schools.
Michelle is particularly passionate about the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in shaping students’ educational experiences. Throughout her career, Michelle has served as a mentor in several capacities, from helping middle/high school students find and cultivate their passions, career interests and leadership styles, to teaching MBAs and undergraduates as an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Drexel University.
Michelle earned her MBA in Strategy and Marketing from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. She is also a graduate of New York University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance degree and a minor in Psychology.
I love the passion, dedication and energy that surrounds Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia, from middle school students and their families to the teaching fellows and staff. Preparedness, opportunity, inspiration and exposure can make a meaningful difference in students’ lives. I am thrilled to be involved in an organization that provides these collective experiences for our students and teaching fellows, helping them build confidence and reach their educational and life goals.
I have 42 first cousins.
