From the moment I set foot on campus, it was clear that Michele was the cultural heart of this program. I have so enjoyed her boundless energy over these hectic years; she cares so deeply about the staff, faculty, and students around her. The key thing that comes to mind when I think of Michele is personality. She has such a powerful identity as a person that she humanizes everything she does and breathes life into everyone she works with. It’s something that I admire for being rare in academia, and makes me proud to be a part of SDOS. Michele’s impact transformed this program long ago for the better and I am thrilled to see her spread this culture to the West Coast. Though as a Berkeley alum I’m obligated to complain about her choice of Stanford, as a fan of Michele I am optimistic that she can finally help them compete with a certain esteemed public university across the bay!
