She also served as an enrichment club advisor, helping students create and develop a three-year project culminating in the only student-built September 11th memorial in Connecticut.

She brings deep experience to that work; she previously served as a high school community service coordinator, where she helped students connect to meaningful community involvement while supporting their career skill development, e.g., communication skills, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving skills. She also has experience with mock interviews and resume building. Taken together, Michele brings deep experience and a wealth of energy to students who are crafting their postsecondary plans.

“It is essential that we are adequately preparing students today to become the workforce of tomorrow. Whatever postsecondary option students choose, it is imperative that they are provided with the necessary tools to succeed.”
