Kelly’s lifelong passion of interior design was first realized with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Virginia Tech. She sharpened her drafting and drawing skills with Mary Douglas Drysdale’s eponymous firm, mastering the crucial and perceptible minutiae of fine-tuned measurements of furnishings within a space. Next was time spent with Thomas Pheasant where Kelly honed vendor relationships and worked alongside the designer to develop and present designs to clients. From there, she joined Lisa Vandenburgh Ltd where she rose to head of interior design, working with longstanding clients nationwide, becoming their design partner in their evolving lifestyles and reimagining their homes accordingly. In 2012, Kelly created KPH Studio.
KPH Studio is the culmination of Kelly’s varied experience. Together with her team, Kelly values longstanding relationships with clients and industry partners, especially Hokies. She directs the creation of interiors that comfort and inspire her clientele. Kelly and her team have helped hundreds of clients discover their style and tell their story.
Outside the Studio, Kelly and her husband enjoy spending time outdoors and make the most of any and all time spent with their three children and family dog.
