Rock31 Member Spotlight: Cassie Michael, Carmichael and Co.

Meet Rock31 Member – Cassie Michael!

Cassie is the Founder and Principal Designer of Carmichael and Co. – an interior design firm specializing in crafting experiences through impactful design for both small businesses and residential clients.
Before starting Carmichael and Co. Cassie worked in marketing, with a healthy dose of interior design, as the Marketing Director for the Gallatin Valley Mall in Bozeman, MT. Upon relocating to Billings, Cassie started her first business specializing in retail marketing campaigns and later transitioned her focus to interiors in 2021.

“My family would say I’ve been designing since age 5” and Cassie has experienced the impact of great design countless times in all aspects of her life from her own home to the businesses she’s worked with. During the COVID, Cassie was forced to slow down and spend more time reflecting on what she loved most about her career which led her to transition to (mostly) interior design. “I absolutely love helping homeowners and business owners alike create personality, beauty, and functionality within their spaces.”
Starting a design business in the midst of global supply chain issues was interesting when it came to sourcing furniture and even some construction materials. Working in the design industry, however, has strengthened Cassie’s patience and she was able to brush off the frustration and uncertainty of those supply chain and other issues.

Cassie has been a part of the Rock31 Coworking Space since it’s opening in the Fall of 2022. “I love having a work family again! Being surrounded by so many talented and bright entrepreneurs always willing to go out of their own way to build each other up has been such an awesome experience to witness.”

To finish out this spotlight on Cassie, we had her answer a few questions to help us get to know her:

What are some of your hobbies/interests (outside of work)?

Outside of work, you can find me spending time with my two rambunctious kids and husband, listening to true crime podcasts, antiquing, or chasing sunshine on a patio with wine in hand.

What is the best book you have ever read?

Best book for business has been the Entrepreneur Roller Coaster by Darren Hardy. For my fellow physiological thriller fans, The Push by Ashely Audrain.

A genie grants you the ability to have an infinite amount of one item. What is it?

Time. It’s the only resource we all share but can’t control… More time to spend with my growing kiddos, more time off, more time to do what I love.
