One of my all time favorite memories of Michele happened right after she returned from a trip to Singapore. I was sitting in the graduate student lab when we heard Michele's iconic footsteps coming from the elevator. 'That sounds like...', someone started, before the door opened and there was Michele, fresh from the airport. After a long overnight flight, she went right into the office and was still ready and willing to talk to students about their research. We politely suggested that she go home, but she was determined! Something small like a flight across the planet wasn't going to stop Michele from reaching out to her students and doing her research. One day, I will have the same energy, or at least, that's what I tell myself. UMD will sorely miss you!!
