Drawing on 30 years of professional experience, Michelle has accomplished creating and owning numerous business entities and being responsible for manufacturing, packaging, quality control, marketing and sales. Michelle’s skills range from interior design, to manufacturing, product design, Specs and Standards, to Project Management.

Michelle is an advocate of sustainable design and healthy living.
With her love of color and the desire to draw in childhood, Michelle knew she was destined to be an artist or, laughingly, a doctor. Ironically, her path would lead her to a blend of creative and healing entities that continue to unfold as steps to the ultimate vision of Michelle’s goals—blending wellness and the arts with a holistic approach.
Michelle’s early education involved the study of Fashion Design at The American Intercontinental University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design. The fashion design culture eventually led her to many design disciplines, including set design, furniture design and ultimately interior design—where she completed the Post-Baccalaureate Interior Design Program at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)—Extension.
Early on and throughout her life, Michelle has had a love for healing herbs which cultivated an affinity for alternative approaches to health and wellness. In 2006, Michelle received training as a Holistic Health Counselor from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), in New York City. She followed this with becoming a certified yoga instructor in 2010.
While working in the design world, Michelle noticed the huge amount of waste as well as synthetic materials that were counterproductive to natural living and were a disservice to the planet. Striving to combine her holistic philosophies with quality designed products; Michelle created Holhaus, where she serves as the CEO and Creative Director. Holhaus is an online marketplace platform for eco-friendly products for your home, body and lifestyle from local and global designers. In addition to eco-friendly products, Holhaus provides interior design and feng shui services that create a holistic environment for residential and commercial projects alike. The Holhaus umbrella is home to two additional entities. MiMi’s Naturally curates natural body care products and vegan snacks. Conscious Fuel is a healthy snack vending service and micro-market provider.
Michelle is proficient in QuickBooks, Photoshop, Illustrator, and AutoCAD. She is a member of ASID and NAMA, GPRO certified, and currently studying for her WELL AP credential to sit for the exam in 2021
