Michelle is an architect by day and math tutor by night. Her patience, desire to help people, and problem-solving skills are benefits for both. When “architecting,” Michelle helps clients uncover the potential of their projects. She asks questions, listens and examines how the design could improve their lives in ways they had not yet considered. When tutoring, Michelle helps frustrated students understand, and even like, math.


Michelle also enjoys figuring out how things go together, whether it’s the arrangement of spaces in a plan, the waterproofing detail at a roof, or the landscape design for her granddaughter’s fairy garden.
