Michelle joins the Aspen Institute’s Financial Security Program on secondment from the NEST pension scheme in the UK. At NEST, Michelle manages partnerships and external affairs for NEST Insight, the in-house research unit set up to help solve challenges facing workers in saving for retirement. In 2018, the Aspen Institute FSP and NEST Insight formed a partnership with the aim of enhancing understanding of, and providing new insight into, how retirement systems can be improved for those on low and moderate incomes. While at Aspen FSP, Michelle will continue to advance this partnership, as well as work on a broader range of research initiatives and convenings within the FSP program. Prior to joining NEST, Michelle held roles at the Social Market Foundation, a UK public policy think tank, and at the London Jazz Festival.
