Started on staff: 2014

Michelle runs campaigns with U.S. PIRG to close corporate tax loopholes and establish more transparent and accessible budgets so ordinary Americans can know how their tax dollars are spent. She has co-authored multiple reports for U.S. PIRG Education Fund, including “Offshore Shell Games,” which was covered by The New York Times, Politico, FOX Business and other news outlets. Michelle lives in Boston, and spends her free time dog-sitting for friends and neighbors.


Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
