After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in interior design from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University, Kelly accepted a position in the design department at a furniture dealership in Pittsburgh. She soon became the lead designer for the largest higher-ed account at the dealership. Her time there was valuable as it not only kept her up to date on the most current furniture trends but also taught her how to manage multiple projects and clients.
Kelly joined SMC in 2012 as an Interior Designer. Her experience in design includes producing CAD drawings including test fits, space plans, and complete drawing sets for design development and pricing documents, specification and layout of various types of furniture, and experience with various office systems products. She also has experience working with real estate firms to produce building standards packages and renderings for marketing brochures for prospective tenants. Kelly strives to remain proficient in the industry’s leading-edge design and rendering software, and embraces new technology as it is presented to her. Kelly is highly organized which is portrayed through her work and execution. Her personable charisma and honesty with clients helps build strong relationships for SMC.
When not designing, Kelly's interests lead her to the outdoors, photography, and music, and commonly all three at once. She loves spending time with her husband and 2 boys, who are the loves of her life. Life is good.
