"I had the privilege of working alongside Michele, and was quickly impressed by her professionalism, motivation and 100% follow through. It is rare to find someone who joins a project with such enthusiasm and never lets the level of energy or commitment diminish. Michele not only taught me the macro level of fundraising efforts, but drove home the person-to-person relationship approach to philanthropy. Michele stands by the belief that cultivating relationships in a consistent and respectful way can garner an organization's years of fruitful contributions.  I look forward to further collaborations with Michele and know any project with her involved will be a positive and successful experience."
