Kelsey always knew how she wanted to spend her life. With her artistic talent Kelsey wanted to design and build homes as well as do remodeling projects. She was one of twenty accepted into Savannah College of Arts and Design following her high school graduation. Kelsey’s love of the outdoors and design then led her to Clemson University, where she was studying Construction Science and Architecture. While attending Clemson, she worked with the homecoming committee designing and building floats and found a love in working with Habitat for Humanity.
