This constant desire to enhance her skill set and increase her knowledge base has allowed Kelsey to view projects from various relevant perspectives and has greatly augmented her design dexterity.
After 5-years in the field of high-end residential design in Naples, FL. Kelsey relocated to Wilmington, NC and accepted a position with a local residential builder as director of digital media, marketing + design in early 2018. She focused on their visual marketing presence while implementing a new and updated track for the company’s publicized future. Being a small business with much success due to each employee’s ability to ‘wear several hats,’ Kelsey was also able to utilize her vast interior design talent in the architectural planning phase of each cottage build, as well as outfitting the interiors of model homes, and assisting clients in the final phase of their home build.
