Smita Vadakekalam, PMP
VP of Professional Services

I’ve been working in the nonprofit sector since 1998. Prior to joining Heller Consulting, I worked in a variety of positions at nonprofits ranging from front-line fundraising, database management, and operations streamlining. Some of the organizations I worked with are the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, City Harvest and Art21.

As the VP of Professional Services at Heller Consulting, I oversee the work we do to implement technology solutions and strong business practices across a wide range of nonprofits. I love working with project teams – both my staff and our clients – to ensure that the right resources and skills are brought to bear on any initiative. I’m amazed every day by the work carried out by our clients and I love working as a team to help make that work more efficient and effective.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree from George Washington University and a Master’s degree in Philanthropic Studies the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy – Indiana University Center on Philanthropy where I serve on the Alumni Board. I am a committee member of the Association of Change Management Professionals, am a Prosci Certified Change Practitioner, and have a PMP certification from the Project Management Institute.
