    I began my career in one of the equity market's most tumultuos months on record, October 1987. Over the past 37 years, I have helped clients manage their wealth through good times and bad. I joined UBS in 2008 after 21 years at Morgan Stanley.

    I manage assets discretionarily for my clients and for other Advisors' clients. I am FINRA - registered and hold Series 7 and 63 securities licenses.

    My bachelor of arts degree is from Northwestern University. I completed the Investment Consultant program at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. I was awarded the Certified Portfolio Manager designation by the Academy of Certified Portfolio Managers program at the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University and was the Valedictorian of the 2012 class. I am currently a board member of the Academy of Certified Portfolio Managers.

    My wife, Susan, and I live with our three children, Maddy, Henry and Winston in Chesterland, Ohio and Steuben, Maine.

      Michelle loves financial planning. At a young age, she excelled in math, and in college, she discovered that her best work came from collaborating with other people. One of her first jobs was at a retail bank where she interacted with clients throughout the day. Helping clients with investment solutions and financial planning became her passion.

      Michelle helps manage client relationships and investments at 42° North Advisors, Michelle offers her clients a wide range of investment solutions. Before choosing any of these investment solutions, Michelle begins by listening and putting in place a customized financial plan that meets her clients’ goals, both short term and long term.

      Spending time with clients—and going above and beyond to deliver exceptional service—is central to Michelle’s approach. She loves taking a situation that looks extremely complicated and offering clarity and simplicity.

      Michelle and her husband, Michael, live in Aurora with their three children, Joey, Molly and Jenna. In 2020, the Hermans welcomed their four-legged friend, Jax. The family is very busy with various sports activities for the kids—basketball, softball, baseball, soccer, swimming and biking. They love exploring and hiking in the area’s national parks, and spending time with family and friends is a favorite activity for all.
