She was currently a Nursing Professor at the Decker School of Nursing at SUNY Binghamton University and taught clinical at UHS Wilson Hospital. She was an active member of the Church of the Holy Family in Endwell, where she enjoyed volunteering for various events and teaching religious education. Michele was a born leader, was committed to the Nursing profession and truly enjoyed providing training and direction to new nurses, whether it was in clinical procedure or just friendly personal advice. Her students always said she was tough and never allowed for mediocrity, but it was to make them the best nurses they could possibly be.

More importantly, she absolutely lived for her family and her daughters and nothing in this world was more important to her. She will be forever in our hearts.
