ABOUT MDS INTERIOR DESIGN

Kelly has been practicing Interior Design for over 25 years.  She earned her Bachelor of Interior Design degree from Louisiana State University and a Master of Historic Preservation from the University of Georgia.  Shortly thereafter, she began her work in Jackson, Mississippi.  Working for two different architectural firms early in her career gave her a valuable understanding of the design and construction process that continues to be reflected in her work today.

Each project whether commercial or residential, bring individual goals and challenges.  Kelly strives to meet those goals and addresses those challenges while respecting the client’s needs, budget and schedule.
