I can sum up my grad school memories of Michele in a very simple equation: Michele = joie de vivre + generosity. She was always up for a party and opened her home to all of the faculty and students on so many occasions. These parties were usually huge events organized to celebrate others’ big life events and successes, where she served amazing goodies and laughter. I had never seen such positivity and generosity before my time with Michele at Maryland, and have not seen it since. This particular evening in 2001, she had gone completely over the top to organize a celebration for me, something for which I will always be grateful. Thank you, Michele, for all that you did and all that you continued to do to make grad school at Maryland a magical experience.
