    MIDDLEBURY — The Vermont Community Foundation has named Martha Trombley Oakes as a senior philanthropic advisor.

    Trombley Oakes currently serves as the associate dean of Institutional Advancement at Vermont Technical College.

She also served in the Vermont Secretary of State’s office under then-secretary Deborah Markowitz.

    She will work with new and existing clients of the Community Foundation to establish charitable funds, advise their grant making, track progress on outcomes, and achieve greater results in their charitable work by partnering with other organizations and grantmakers.

    Trombley Oakes earned her bachelor of arts degree in political science from the University of Southern Maine and her master’s degree in business administration from Norwich University.
