Michelle is a 2008 summa cum laude, graduate of High Point University in High Point, NC, accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (formerly FIDER). There she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in both interior design and home furnishings marketing. Earning a degree in the “Furniture Capital of the World” opened up many opportunities for Michelle to participate in the High Point Furniture Market and in multiple internships, including working under the VP of Design at Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman. Midway through her academic career she earned the prestigious Celia Moh Scholarship, and her senior year was capped with receiving the title of “Interior Design Student of the Year", as well as, winning the Haverty Cup, an honor awarded to one stand out Home Furnishings student.

Most recently Michelle passed the NCIDQ exam. The NCIDQ focuses on the technical side of interior design, testing knowledge of public health, life safety and welfare. Passing the exam allows her to gain professional status within ASID. 

When Michelle is not working, she enjoys dabbling in arts and crafts projects and spending time with her husband, Drew, and their two dogs, Apollo & River.
