Michelle Kelly

VP, Marketing & BD

I am most passionate about improving others’ lived experiences through connection, curiosity, and empathy. Creating meaningful relationships is the heart of my work. Through them, I love uncovering individuals’ strengths and talents and helping them shine. When facilitating groups and teams, I welcome new and inventive ideas from all voices which requires honest, authentic communication and trust. This helps me to build strategies, understanding the collective desires, and distilling these down into the intricate steps to take for a successful outcome.

I believe that we all have a responsibility to be inclusive leaders, mentoring our teammates while learning from their experiences. The way you treat others matters, particularly in an industry where people are at the root of our work and our designs. The shift to life-centered design that is taking hold to create healthy environments for people and the planet to thrive excites me.
