She has worked for award‐winning firms in New York and the Baltimore‐Washington region bringing a unique perspective to the profession infusing function into form through her work and experience with the Low Impact Development Center.

Kelly’s passion for landscape architecture stems from her love of painting and drawing combined with her love of nature and all of its processes seen and unseen. Good landscape design can promote ecosystem functions that support us by providing clean air, clean water, and increased biodiversity. Kelly seeks to integrate thoughtful design with emerging practices grounded in research and technology to support the ecosystems that support us. Her desire is to provide opportunities for all to have meaningful connections to the outdoors.
