Michelle started her career as a Residential Consultant supporting Housing Associations & Local Authorities with Strategic Needs Assessment and Business & Financial Planning. Michelle previously spent 5 years with EC Harris (latterly Arcadis) as a financial analyst within the Residential business, and went on to head up the Financial Modelling Team that was focused on providing Clients with residential development consultancy advice and support in relation to site acquisition, master planning, planning viability and the raising of equity & debt financing.
