A LEED accredited professional, with extensive experience in landscape construction, she thoroughly understands the issues of construction, functionality and cost as well as sustainability through integrated design.
Ms. Kelly’s love for traveling has provided her the opportunity to work in places like Italy, Australia, United Arab Emirates and the Bahamas.

Ms. Kelly’s adventurous life style has recently brought her into the private estate consulting and landscape maintenance training fields. ESK Design was formed as a result of a consulting trip to the Bahamas where Ms. Kelly saw a way to integrate her hands on approach to design and construction with her interests in mentoring and travel.
