Michele has both a JD and a Master’s in Public Health and has spent the past 25 years working with non-profit organizations in one way or another.

She began her legal career practicing health care law where her clients were mainly hospitals and other charitable institutions. During this time, much of her work involved drafting legal documents for hospitals and other charitable institutions and exempt organizations, including for example HIPAA confidentiality forms, policies and procedures in emergency care and general patient quality of care matters, and practitioner contracts. Michele has also advised hospitals on compliance issues concerning HIPAA, Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse, and reimbursement and billing matters.

Michele has extensive experience in the operations and funding of nonprofit organizations and charitable institutions, including grant writing and grant review work. She recently completed grant research and writing for the American Red Cross of Southeastern PA. In addition, Michele has served on non-profit boards where she has held various leadership positions, which often involved developing, drafting and implementing various policies, bylaws, and standards of practice for the organization. She is an active member of Har Zion Temple and Impact 100 Philadelphia.

In her spare time, Michele enjoys travelling with her husband and four children, going to the beach, bike riding, reading and singing.  Moreover, she has always had a lifelong love of writing and is a self-described grammar geek.

Michele is passionate about working with people and with organizations that are actively involved in making a real impact in the communities they serve. She believes the message in the song “Hammer and a Nail” by the Indigo Girls embodies this spirit.
