More about Michelle’s journey and her award:
Over the past 20 years, Michelle Widner has dedicated herself to advancing the Interior Design profession throughout the region.

Other positions she has held include VP of City Centers, NPC Advocacy Committee member, and the Advocacy Chair for both the Spokane and Boise City Centers. Promoting NCIDQ certification is a passion of Michelle’s, and during her time on the Board, she worked to establish the NCIDQ Program to provide resources to IIDA Members throughout the Chapter. She currently serves on the NPC Past President Council, Chapter Historian, and REVEAL Spokane 2024 Chair.
A graduate of Washington State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design, Michelle is currently an interior designer and project manager at Bernardo Wills, a multidisciplinary design firm in Spokane, WA. She has extensive design experience in various markets, including education, retail, financial, multi-family, workplace, and public spaces. As a volunteer, she has also served on many local boards and committees, including both the Spokane Falls Community College and Washington State University Interior Design Advisory Boards.
