ABOUT MICHELE MOORE
Sykesville, with my husband and three pets.
If you had not chosen banking as a profession, what profession would you choose and why?
I wanted to be a lawyer in Baltimore. I mentored under a very successful attorney in Baltimore during College. I had an opportunity to observe him in action and was very impressed with his ability to debate and negotiate. I learned some very strong influencing skills that I have taken into the banking industry.
I travel to Pawleys Island , South Carolina a few times a year. There are also so many beautiful places to visit in Maryland , and I definitely think Deep Creek Lake is one of them!
When I want to relax, I … :
When I want to relax , I enjoy time with family and friends. I have a very large family, and most of them live in Maryland. It’s very easy to visit them or include them in day trips around Maryland. I also take time for myself to read and listen to music. It’s important to walk away from those electronic devices from time to time and just be in the moment. I need to remind myself about that everyday .
Favorite books and TV shows:
I try to develop myself as a leader by reading business books on employee engagement and culture. I secretly enjoy a few HBO and Showtime series. Among my most favorite are “Games of Thrones” and “Homeland.”
