She excels with attention to detail and very much enjoys using her creative flair to put the finishing touches on every project she encounters whether it is to manage or design. She has experienced a wide variety of project types, giving her the ability to switch gears quickly and be flexible with timeframes and works scopes. Michelle is also a firm believer in the ability to communicate effectively with all individuals is essential, no matter what industry one works in. She strives to impart these skills daily. She feels these traits are basic tenants to doing well, and thus the philosophy, If you are going to do something, do it well!
A graduate of The University of Tennessee School of Architecture in 2004, Michelle is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and an Associate member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). She also obtained her LEED AP Status in 2007 in the Existing Building O+M category and always looks for a way to bring sustainability into every project, no matter the scale. Michelle also enjoys working with the Knox Brix and Blocks events with the AIA as a community out-reach program for kids of all ages. (Translation: It’s really a reason for her to be around Legos!)
Michelle recently built a custom home and is enjoying putting the finishing touches on her property with her husband. The experience of building a personal home has given her invaluable insight into her profession to the challenges many building owners often go through as an owner. She also loves making wine, gardening, cooking, participating in events within the creative community and spending time with her animal menagerie. She and her husband like to work on projects around their property as well as travel.
