From fashion… to interiors, Michelle’s constantly creating innovative looks and unique environments. An advocate for the Des Moines community, she’s also a cheerleader for others as she mentors up-and-coming creatives.
How did you decide on your career path?
I took a design class in high school and decided I wanted to do interior design but wasn’t exactly sure what that meant. 20 years later, it’s been the right career for me from the beginning!
What is your favorite part of the design process?
There’s nothing that compares to project completion; I love seeing the final result.
How are you creating vibrant communities through design?
I had the opportunity to design the interiors of Morris Elementary School and Bondurant Library, projects that are in the community where we live and where our kids go to school. It’s fun to see these spaces filled with children and families making memories.
What makes Des Moines a great place to live?
We have extremely talented and visionary community members putting Des Moines on the map. It’s truly become a destination with premier events for all ages, year-round.
