Michelle O’Toole

Years at O’Toole Design? 25, I started in my basement in January of 1994.

What inspired you to start your own company? I wanted to be flexible with my schedule and forge my own destiny, as well as work with people that appreciated great design and service.

What is your favorite project so far at O’Toole Design? It’s like potato chips – I can’t name just one!

What 3 things do you like most about working at O’Toole Design? The people I get to work with everyday; the relationships and friendships built with great clients; every day is different!

If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be? A paid Travel Blogger on the day I was working in Switzerland.

Who inspires you? People who are positive in their outlook and can see things from different perspectives. My Grandmother was an inspiration to me as well. She was creative, looked at the positive side of everyone and was a good guide. She was easy to talk to and worked as a counselor up to the time she passed at St. Louis Community College!

Where is your favorite place in the world? Curled up with a good book by a warm toasty fire!
