As a lifelong resident of Carlisle, Michele has fond memories of the many families she met from the U.S. Army War College through the years. While working full-time, Michele attended Wilson College during evenings and weekends to obtain a B.S. in Business & Economics with a concentration in Accounting. Her work history includes various accounting and human resource positions at a local manufacturing company and later at a software development company. However, it is Michele’s ten year tenure as the Business Manager of a local non-profit that enabled her to easily assimilate into her role at the Foundation in early 2018.
