Nomination Essay

Michelle has been with UMUC and the military advising team for a few years now and is committed and dedicated to both her students and her staff.  As an assistant director for the team, she supports and guides the advisors that work for her.  She is well respected within the Office of Enrollment Management by her fellow managers and advisors and has on more than a few occasions stepped up and addressed concerns to make business processes better for her students and advisors.  She also spends a good portion of her work week working with her team members to coach and mentor them so they can better advise our students.  

Michelle also is actively involved in numerous events at UMUC including volunteering for many Open House events for both new and prospective students as well as active-duty military and veteran students.  She also volunteers on many occasions to work during holidays and stays late quite often to make sure the job gets completed.  

Michelle would make an excellent candidate for ASAC.  She understands the importance of allowing her voice to be heard so she can make a difference for staff.  She has the drive needed to make the necessary changes at UMUC for staff and am confident she will be a great asset for ASAC.
