Michelle BavermanDesign for America Fellow


Michelle is fascinated by how the design of spaces, products, and systems can affect each and every person’s daily life, and enjoys paying attention to how little details can make big impact. While an undergrad, she founded and led DFA U Cincinnati, spent time in rural Tanzania applying design thinking to local challenges, and interned at architecture firms NYC, Cincinnati, and San Francisco. DFA has helped her develop her passion for human-centered design and getting people excited about social innovation. Outside of DFA, she loves running half marathons, exploring on her bike, eating ice cream, and seeing live music.


BS in Architecture, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH
