Selected by an all-star committee of regional design leaders, 5 Under 40 winners are the people to watch, producing some of the most beautiful and innovative work available today."

Currently pursuing a Master of Sustainable Design Degree at the BAC, Kelly launched her design studio in 2004, and has since been recognized for exceptional interior design.
