Kelsey also graduated with a degree in Landscape Architecture and a Minor in Horticulture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She began her career in the landscape maintenance field working for the globally recognized design/build/maintenance company Bright View, in San Diego. She also worked as a Horticulturist at the Disneyland Theme Park in Anaheim, CA.

A shift from landscape maintenance to landscape design brought her and Brandon to the Central Coast. She was Lead Designer for Sage Ecological Landscapes before starting her own landscape design consulting company. Her green thumb leads to a passion for plants, and she has an extensive background in drought tolerant landscape design and nature-driven free-form design.
