Growing up in a family of academics and artists in a small ski town in Vermont, Noelle knew early on that she wanted to travel and learn as much about design as much as she possibly could. After earning her Bachelor's from Boston University, she pursued her Master's in Design History, Theory, and Curatorial Studies with a focus on modernist architecture from Parsons School of Design in New York City. While there, she gained a rich breadth of design experience ranging from teaching to research, writing, archiving, and exhibition dressing at various institutions including the Museum of Modern Art and Museum of Arts and Design. She then moved to Paris to complete her postgraduate research in conjunction with the Fondation Le Corbusier, taking on creative projects that took her to London, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and beyond. Upon finishing her postgraduate work, Noelle moved to Los Angeles where her avid interest in design history and all aspects of mediation led her to join Kovac Design Studio as their Director of Communications. She is fascinated by the intersection of space and emotion and spends her free time hunting vintage furniture, painting, and listening to too many podcasts.
