    Hard work and continued crafting of my skills along the way. Accepting new challenges as they were offered. Mentors who took the time, returning the same in kind as I have advanced. It's been rewarding on many levels. It all began with my parents teaching me what "a work ethic" meant. Authenticity, integrity and tenacity are also the lessons they demonstrated daily to me along the way...lucky me! I practice them daily. It all matters...especially when no one is looking, except Him!

    I have been in a predominantly male field for 17 years. Aerospace, Quality Assurance. It took me several years to gain respect and notoriety of my peers. I did so with kindness, consistency, respect, and when stuff hit the fan, they could count on me. Listening to them talk not just hearing them. Paying attention to the smallest details and seeing pride in their eyes. My colleagues would tell you 'go see Michele for help. She knows or knows how to find it.' I am a woman of action, deeds. I genuinely honor the men & women who took time with me. I enjoy learning (yes, a female can learn new tricks too) getting to know the things that bring you joy. I am grateful for all that I have. I carry my characteristics and traits into everything I do. My love languages are quality time, touch, acts of service.

    I am the only daughter in an Egyptian Muslim family. I was raised to believe I could do anything I dreamed long as I continued to dream. So I did. I dream...I plan..I accomplish my hearts desire and when I can't I accept defeat as a part of my learning process. The poem "Guesthouse"by RUMI speaks to this..

    The right mindset is the key to obtaining what you want. Master your thoughts, feelings and emotions and the world is yours... Earning lots of money can be a simple thing if your willing to take the necessary steps but understand that all ideas don't manifest in the same season. Being patient is key. Life is a marathon not a race.
