Interior Designer Appointed by President Obama to US Access Board
The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale
Shelley was originally appointed in May 2016 to complete the term left vacant following the death of architect Michael Graves. Her reappointment is for a full term and she’ll work to continue the Board’s goal to develop and maintain design criteria for the built environment, transit vehicles, telecommunications equipment, medical diagnostic equipment, and information technology.
With over 44 years in the industry, Shelley brings a wealth of experience to the position. Now as the principal of Siegel Design Group, she’s committed to creating aesthetically pleasing universal design concepts for the home, workplace, hospitality, and healthcare environments.
Shelley, who in 1978 earned an Associate of Arts in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, is a Fellow of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and a member of the Design Alliance for Accessible and Sustainable Environments. According to the Siegel Design Group website, she looks to provide beautiful form and function to her clients. “Shelley is careful to include design elements which accommodate most of life’s changes, including the normal processes of aging.” She is a former member of the Advisory Panel for the National Universal Design Program of the American Society of Interior Designers, the Florida Coordinating Council on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Florida Department of Cultural Affairs ADA Advisory Board.
