Celebrating The Women at MWHS: Michele Moser

Celebrating The Women at MWHS: Michele Moser

To celebrate Women’s Month, we’ve had the privilege of sitting down with some of our exceptional team members at MWHS to delve into their inspiring journeys. Today, we shine a spotlight on Michele Moser, our Portfolio Manager.

How long have you been at MWHS? 

Michele began her MWHS journey in November 1998, when the organization focused on public housing management. Initially joining the maintenance team, which consisted of approximately seven individuals, Michele has since been promoted through various departments, ultimately assuming a supervisory role within our property management team.

What do you enjoy about working at MWHS?

Michele expresses her enthusiasm for collaborating with her team and engaging with the residents, finding fulfillment in assisting others.

“I have been fortunate to be here for a long time. I run into residents all the time,” Michele shares, highlighting the frequent encounters with past tenants in her everyday experiences.  “The opportunity to help people is the most rewarding aspect of my role.”

Which aspects of being a woman/mother/sister/grandmother have helped you in the line of work you do?

Michele says her roles as a wife, mother, and grandmother have fostered her understanding that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to interacting with people.

“Everyone is unique and different,” she says.

Have you had a mentor in your career? If yes, who was he/she and how did they help you? 

With a long tenure at MWHS encompassing various roles, Michele reflects on the guidance she received from numerous mentors. Among them is Robert Hobbs, a maintenance supervisor at MWHS, who stands out as a significant source of inspiration.

“He helped build my confidence,” Michele reminisces, highlighting Robert’s pivotal role in her professional development. She says Robert set high expectations for his team. Alongside Hobbs, Michele credits colleagues Joyce Hardwick, Theresa Folks, and Sarah Catalanotto as mentors throughout her journey. She said their mentorship fueled her drive to excel, driven by a desire to make them proud.

Having ascended to a supervisory position within MWHS, Michele’s trajectory serves as a testament to her dedication and resilience.

How do you try to empower the women in your life?

Michele humbly expressed uncertainty about her ability to empower women, noting that she views the women around her as inherently strong and independent.

“Anybody can be anything,” she asserts, encapsulating her inclusive philosophy. Perhaps it is this unwavering belief in her team’s capabilities and potential that has facilitated her effective leadership and garnered the widespread respect echoed by colleagues and in several reviews of MWHS.
