My name is Michelle Kiley. I am dedicated to supporting local leaders interested in investing in design. I hold degrees in both Urban and Local Affairs; and Tourism, Planning, and Development. The body of my work focuses on design through the lens of the overall visitor and resident’s experience.
Areas of Focus
Design assessment specific to:
- Educational programming and interpretation of a specific resource(s).
- Space planning within a particular building or designated community space.
- Creative placemaking through arts-based community development (ABCD).
My work emphasizes responsible planning and community development best practices. In addition, it recognizes the symbiotic relationships and encourages out-of-the-box approaches that entice people to playfully engage in their surroundings. Feel free to contact me to talk about your design ideas and goals for success.
