Melissa was drawing kitchens as a kid, often dreaming up new arrangements for what her adult kitchen would look like. It’s no surprise she loves design. You could say she was born with it. 

A grad from U of M with a bachelor’s in interior design, Melissa is dedicated to the craft of design. She’s known, and worked with, Beyond Kitchens for over a decade.

Melissa enjoys working with the homeowner on their vision and creating exactly what they’ve dreamed of.
