Meet Kelly, an aspiring architect at Keene Architecture, who started as an intern in 2021 and quickly advanced to a design and drafting role. With a background rooted in Narragansett's rich architectural heritage and a Bachelor's degree in Architecture from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Kelly is passionate about community design and women's roles in architecture.
Raised in Narragansett, Rhode Island, Kelly honed her creative talents in an environment steeped in architectural history and through her collaboration with local artists at One Way Art Gallery. Her artistic journey includes mural painting and engaging in design work, deeply influenced by the rich architectural history of her hometown.
Graduating from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2020 with a Bachelor's degree in Architecture, Kelly concentrated on community design. She was not only actively involved in civic engagement initiatives but also played a key role as a founding member of the Women in Architecture club.
She furthered her academic pursuit at Roger Williams University and currently is pursuing her Master's at Boston Architectural College.
