Michelle has been in the design industry for nearly 20 years.
She founded Creative Edge Interiors, an award-winning interior design firm specializing in large scale residential and commercial renovations and full-service furniture packages.
Michelle is well respected for her award-winning designs, her sound business acumen, and her dedication to philanthropy. She's also known for infusing an aura of excitement and a breath of fresh air into each of her projects.
I absolutely love designing and it’s such an honor to work alongside my clients each and every day. I’m known for my zest of life, heart of service, and my ability to bring fun and excitement into each project I am honored to re-envision and design.
I live by my personal mantra: to design a life I don’t need a vacation from.
I am often asked: Michelle, how did you get started in this industry?
Prior to pursuing my interior design career, I came from a business background with over 10 years of customer service, management, team building, and project coordination experience. This rare combination of skills and abilities established a solid foundation that "sets the table" for success on each project.
I've also spent years managing general contractor’s firms. As part of an intensive training process, I worked for a year in the field as a crew member, familiarizing myself with the construction industry and gaining invaluable insight. I've also worked as a project manager, managing construction projects, supervising trades, and vetting new subcontractors. This unique perspective made for a seamless transition into studying interior design and honing the skills of my life-long creative obsession.
When I am not designing beautiful spaces, I serve as an Ambassador for The Know Women, an organization that celebrates high achieving women who lead + collaborate + give back. I’m also a member of The Dames, a community of women running and leading six and seven figure organizations. And I participate in two local mastermind groups, a casual collaborative for interior designers and a second group for women in construction.
I love spending time with my large, close-knit family (many of them entrepreneurs and creative souls), as well as my colleagues and friends. It brings me immense joy to coordinate service projects throughout the year, as well as mentor and help others in the pursuit of their goals and dreams.
I’ve been married to Roger, my all-time favorite human, for 33 years and together we have two grown children, a three-year-old grandson, and a rescue pup named Dixie Rose. I love spending time in the great outdoors (as often as possible on the back of a motorcycle), and also love to experience transformative travel, a variety of music, craft cocktails, and adventures that feed my soul!
