As a young girl, Michelle was often found sketching and designing dream spaces in her free time, taking floor plan layouts found in the new home builder section of the newspaper and creating new and functional layouts. Encouraged to follow her passion, she studied in Interior Design and began her career in retail with The Home Depot in 2005.
Through this, she has honed her design and sales capabilities for a diverse customer base and has gone on to receive her designation with the National Kitchen and Bath Association as a Certified Designer. Her involvement with the NKBA inspired her to create a program within her own organization that promotes the development of other Home Depot Designers to achieve their accreditation. Recently, she had the opportunity to volunteer as a judge for a provincial, student design competition and thoroughly enjoyed being part of an event that brought recognition to some new and emerging talent.
In her current role, she leads a dynamic team that supports the growth of the Kitchen + Bath business, consulting on processes to enhance the customer experience and overseeing the training and development of Kitchen Designers nationally.
