Kelly originally hails from the Buckeye State, Ohio, but she has spent the last 10 years in Colorado. She resides in Denver with her husband, two children, and two large and energetic dogs. She graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor’s in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing. Since then, she’s had experience in multiple industries including retail, hospitality, and real estate. In 2020, after some pandemic forced soul-searching, she decided to embark on a path to follow her need for creativity and passion of interior design by enrolling in the Heritage program in Denver. Shortly after graduating, she worked for a local design firm where she expanded on her industry knowledge and experience.
While Kelly still has a deep passion for interior design, her career path has led her back to Heritage. Her previous life experiences, personally and professionally, coupled with her natural ability to connect with people make her role at Heritage a perfect fit. She loves being surrounded by passionate and creative people and believes being able to help students on their path to pursue their dreams is the ultimate privilege.
