Even though she spent many years as a Bostonian, Michele grew up locally in Sherrill, N.Y. After receiving an economics degree, she worked in the financial services industry in Boston for several years before deciding to take an entirely different path in life. in 2001, she went back to school and became a teacher, working in that profession until 2019.

As an account manager at MPW, Michele brings her cumulative experience to the table, managing clients’ money – and their unique, individual needs. In fact, she enjoys solving problems and being someone that people know they can count on. (In fact, she once procured a mannequin leg for a friend who wanted to make the leg lamp from “A Christmas Story.”)

Michele’s free time has gone to the dogs – she has three dogs that keep her busy, and she volunteers with a Basenji rescue group. For fun, she enjoys playing with her dogs, as well as going to flea markets and thrift stores.
