Principal & Design Director
Michelle is the Director of Design with over 20 years of experience in the planning and design of interior environments. Her expertise has transformed buildings, corporate offices, medical centers and offices, religious buildings, retail, casino, and restaurant spaces.
A graduate of the University of Michigan, School of Art and Architecture, Ann Arbor, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design, Michelle believes good design promotes well-being.
“I believe that design is not arbitrary, but linked to a designer’s ability to interpret or translate the client’s identity into physical space. Interior spaces provoke an emotional response and set an underlying tone for a desired use. How a space is designed greatly affects how human beings interact and respond to the space. The physical interior structure, lighting, materials, furnishings, and details are all important considerations to creating a desired effect,” she explains.
Michelle is passionate about creating signature spaces that reflect a client’s desired image and use. Her planning expertise focuses on helping her clients understand their current design challenge, defining the goals for solving these problems, and designing a physical solution to successfully meet these goals. Michelle guides the design process from concept to build out.
