Meet Michelle 

studio principal | lead designer

Michelle (she/her) has been in the DC metro area design industry for almost a decade, focusing on multi-family and hospitality, both new construction and renovation. 

Michelle is a well rounded designer who brings her formidable force of talent to every aspect of the design process. Her talents span the gamut of the design process including conceptual design, schematic design, construction documentation, finish and fabric selection, FF&E specifications and budgets, lighting, furniture design and construction administration. Michelle believes design is in the details and works with speed and accuracy to coordinate drawings that accurately reflect design intents while creating timely deliverables.

She gained experience with a wide variety of design roles - including Revit Manager, where she led teamwide training classes (in person and virtual), provided Revit Tech Support, created a company Revit Manual, refined/created the project Revit templates, and created Revit best practices.  This is invaluable experience that she can bring to your team and firm. In addition, she was a senior designer, who completed several large scale projects from start to completion. This invaluable experience can assist your team and firm. 

Being a part of the design community and paying it forward is very important to Michelle. She is proud to be entering her fifth year on the NEWH DC Metro Chapter Board as VP of Development. She previously held the position of Secretary for one year and Marketing Director for three years where she developed marketing campaigns, communication reach outs and increased social media engagement.


Michelle graduated Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University, with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Interior Design. She resides in Alexandria, VA.
