Michelle, who was 54, was the CEO of Strategic Resources Alliance, a successful west coast-based company in the staffing business. She was equally — maybe even better — known for her quiet and consistent generosity and a huge heart. She started her career as a social worker and really remained one all her life. She never met a worthy non-profit she didn’t like and she was an easy touch when it came to Board member recruitment! She supported her causes not just financially, but also by doing and there are several stories about her taking a meal to a family in need, feeding someone on the street, or helping out a substance abuser, and such. Sadly, she leaves behind three children, Joshua, Jeremy, and Rebecca. All of the Orange County Grovers knew Michelle and many of us counted her as a friend. She was the real thing and she will be really missed.
