Karleigh Handwork

Interior Designer
B.S. Interior Design, Art Institute of California, San Diego, 2017

After falling in love with interior design at a young age, Karleigh received her Bachelors degree from the Art Institute of California, San Diego. During her studies, she discovered her favorite part of interior design is the potential of color to transform a space. Karleigh loves how powerful and personal this element of design can be, and likes using color to highlight clients' personalities in their spaces. Moving to Phoenix, Karleigh was eager for new experiences and to see how beautiful the desert can be.  MCI's team environment of dedicated interior designers who collaborate and explore together, was exactly what she was looking for.  In her free time, she enjoys taking walks in nature, socializing with friends and finding creative ways to add to the decor in her home.

Always seeking to grow both personally and professionally, Monica aims to add her zest for organization and client connection to the MCI team! Originally fueled by a desire to understand people on a deeper level, she received her Masters of Social Work and Child Development back in her hometown of Chicago.

Monica hopes the desert landscape will serve as inspiration for her creative hobbies of photography, painting, and gardening.
