Out of college, Kelly got her dream job working for Ralph Lauren; creating the ads that used to hang on her bedroom walls, working on campaigns that spanned from the Dakotas to Dubai. She managed global branding, worked on campaigns from conception to completion and executed omni-channel advertising strategies. In creative pursuit, she set out independently as a set designer and prop stylist, building visual voice in photography through objects, colors, and textures. Through it all, Kelly has contributed textually as a lifestyle writer, lending her words to the description of the beautiful and unique.
