Kelly has been a registered architect since 1997, she has a diverse knowledge of design and construction and has successfully directed and managed projects in commercial, medical, civic, community and mixed-use projects of all scales. Prior to collaborating with long-time colleagues to form STUDIO G ARCHITECTS, INC., Kelly worked as lead designer, project manager and associate at several prominent architectural firms in San Jose. Kelly and her partners started the firm with a desire to put more focus on service and design excellence. Internally, her responsibilities include management of daily workflow for design teams to meet project goals and create design presentations in all stages.

Her personal involvement continues through into documentation for construction, managing quality and design issues, selecting and specifying materials, and developing design details that preserve the integrity of the design intent. Her extensive building and interior architecture design experience is aided by her ability to produce design documentation, including planning packages, 3D models, colored renderings, hand sketches and presentation materials. Her utilization of 3D, integral to the design process, not only allows for a more complete exploration of design alternatives, but is a primarybenefit in the successful communication of proposed concepts. Her knowledge of building materials, detailing and interior finishes has resulted in creative high impact design solutions. As a LEED accredited professional, Kelly is committed to bringing green design building principals into all projects where this approach is desired by the owners.
