As the Federation's Program Officer, Michelle works with community development credit unions (CDCUs) on the implementation and expansion of programs and tools that advance financial empowerment and expand financial inclusion in low-income and underserved communities. Prior to joining the Federation, Michelle was a senior analyst at Callahan & Associates where she specialized in cooperative financial analysis and strategic planning that informed asset-building programs and products across the country. She believes that credit unions are best served to support members and their financial health.
Christopher Linder Thanks for the positive feedback! Currently, our program doesn't have the volume to support a fee-based service, but in the future we may reach critical mass to sustain a revolving loan fund that covers more staff time. Definitely good food for thought.
