Chelle began working in model home design immediately after graduating from the Art Institute of Colorado, where she designed for several national builders including Morrison Homes, Meritage Homes and Ryland Homes. In March of 2007, she joined Ricca Newmark Design (now known as Ricca Design Studios). Over the course of seven years Chelle gained valuable experience and proved to be an asset to the RND design team, building strong relationships with hotel brands such as Starwood Hotels and IHG. In May 2014, Chelle felt it was time to spread her wings, and joined studioLEMONADE; a small boutique firm in Denver’s Art District. During her brief tenure with SL, Chelle gained valuable experience in the F/B Entertainment Venue, Multi-Family and Corporate markets. Ultimately, her passion for Hospitality Design led her to venture away from SL in 2015 and to develop studioM2; a full-service design firm specializing in Hospitality Design. Continuing to strengthen Chelle’s relationships with the hotel brands, studioM2 was awarded three hotel projects within the first year of business. Chelle prides herself on providing the best customer service experience for every client/project, big or small. Her attention to detail, ability to listen and execute a client’s vision are supreme qualities, in addition to her leadership that set her apart in the industry.
In addition to her passion for design, Chelle enjoys gourmet cooking, baking, reading, traveling and spending time with her two children.

Chelle has been a delight to work with on a multi-million dollar project at Cheyenne Mountain Resort. Always prepared with details, research, and quick to respond to any kind of question; she handles the tough questions with aplomb, shares her opinions in a gracious manner, and has a wonderful sense of humor. Truly has her client's interests at heart, and gives 100% and then some.”
