During this time, she has been excellent in processing paperwork for PEPS with a very high load of work, from grantsmanship to personnel hiring to travel documents to reimbursements. Michelle goes above and beyond to assist staff and faculty overcome challenges PEPS has faced, especially throughout the pandemic. She plays a significant role in ensuring that faculty maintain good standing with grant funding agencies and in keeping critical research projects functioning.

She is proactive, proficient, engaging, and a good team-builder.
