Michelle collaborates on a variety of projects with our University of Maryland Memorial Chapel and Garden, primarily in an administrative capacity. She is a true believer in the healing and community building powers of nature.
On campus, our garden is a beloved beauty that has longstanding ties to the neighborhood. It has served as a focal point for numerous programs, most notably the Walk for Remembrance in honor of September 11. Many people have used it to remember loved ones or to cope with the upsetting changes life so frequently throws in their direction. And it’s a welcoming area for regular visits—a spot to pause and take a breather.
