Our Team

Misty James

Senior Office Manager,

Misty has been with Design Collaborative almost since the beginning, and she truly does everything. From project administration responsibilities to business financials, to every little task under the sun that pops up, Misty works tirelessly to get things done and get them done right. She is always smiling and encouraging everyone around her.

When not at work, you can find Misty traveling for her daughter’s softball travel team. Both Misty and her husband with 3 sport athletes in high school so she is competitive by nature and enjoys watching just about any sport. When she isn’t surrounded by sports, Misty enjoys spending time with her family at cookouts, playing cornhole, and walking at Foster Park.
