Our New Go Red Director Finds Inspiration From Paris to Providence

Perched 1,063 feet tall, the Eiffel Tower offers some of the most breathtaking views that Paris has to offer.

For Michelle Clark, the new Go Red for Women Director for the Southern New England American Heart Association, the views were literally a gift.

“I spent my 40th birthday at the top of the Eiffel Tower,” Clark said. “Seeing how awesome the views were and being able to share it with my kids, my Mom and my husband was special.”

With a finance degree from the University of Central Florida and an MBA from George Washington University, Clark has worked as a stockbroker, served on the East Greenwich Education Foundation and is now taking on her next challenge with the American Heart Association.

“I am so excited that 650 business leaders, mostly women, will be coming together for the Go Red for Women Luncheon, to help with the research and the advocacy is really great,” said Clark. The Go Red for Women Luncheon is taking place on February 14, 2019. The Chair of the Go Red for Women Luncheon is Lisa Abbott, the Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Community Affairs Lifespan Corporation.

“I am thankful to be a part of the Go Red for Women Luncheon and am looking forward to the energy in the room that day,” said Clark. For tickets to the Go Red for Women Luncheon and more information go to snegoredluncheon.heart.org.

 For the holidays this year, Michelle, her husband Chris and their two young daughters, Grace and Lila, will be heading south.  Chris’s grandfather is turning 100 the day before Christmas. “It is going to be exciting and we can’t wait to celebrate with him,” she said.

As the Go Red for Women Director she loves the idea of keeping women healthy and preventing heart disease. “I want my girls to grow up and be strong and be Moms of their own one day and I want to be a part of that.”
