Chris Michaelis

Chris has been with Fundriver since December 2019, joining the team as an Endowment Accounting Specialist. In early 2021, she became a Client Onboarding Advisor. Chris' goal is to always provide top-notch service to Fundriver users when they are in the Implementation phase. She loves working with clients and helping them find the best solutions for their organizations.

I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people. It is such a great feeling knowing that I was able to solve their problem and make their workday easier.

Chris loves working at Fundriver. The company truly cares about its employee's welfare and knows that happy employees lead to happy clients. It has also provided her with a fantastic work/life balance, being the first company she has worked for that offers yoga three times a week and allows her to hang out with her 12-year-old pup, Maxie all day.

Chris holds her BSBA/MBA in Accounting and has worked most of her career in the education and non-profit accounting sector. During her ten years of working at Elgin Community College, Chris focused on Student Accounts and Financial Aid. She also had the opportunity to work on the College’s Business Office side and assisted with college’s grants and foundation while there. Prior to Fundriver, she also worked as a financial analyst at Fermilab, a United States Department of Energy national laboratory specializing in high-energy particle physics.

Chris has a 26-year-old daughter and is a very proud Grandma of a precious little boy! She comes from a large family that moved around quite a bit. She was born in Indiana, but then moved to Taiwan, Texas, Mexico, back to Indiana, then to Illinois and has been there since 1989. Her favorite pastimes are traveling and spending time with family.
