Kelly always had an eye for puttering around her room as a kid, or in her house as an adult, changing up furniture and trying out new ideas and layouts. It wasn’t until several years ago, a realtor who was showing her house for sale thought she paid someone to stage it. Kelly’s realtor replied, “Kelly’s house always looks like this!” Kelly has a knack of how to best utilize space and maximize the benefits of organization. She’s been known to help organize desk tops without thinking about it; her supervisors were supportive of her ideas and just left her to do what she wanted, encouraging a future career.
Kelly prides herself in being punctual, organized and professional. Kelly is respectful of her clients’ spaces. Whether they plan to move or plan to say; Kelly will work with her customers to visualize the best situation for the spaces they task her with staging or organizing.
