Kelley was raised in Hawaii where development and design were the foundation of her family background. She learned incredible design knowledge at a very young age from her step-father Christopher B. Hemmeter. Chris pioneered the concept of the destination resort. He was the owner of The Hawaiians of The World Football League in 1974 and became the commissioner of the league in 1975. Kelley collaborated on design ideas and was instrumental in her support of project development efforts for major resorts such as The Hyatt Regency Waikoloa, The Westin Maui, and The Westin Kauai at The Kauai Lagoons.
While working with Hemmeter Companies, she refined her ability to create special surroundings for a wide variety of clients. These clients included luminaries in the fields of politics, entertainment, and business. Kelley also completed a project for Bravo Television to re-design the home of “American Idol” star Paula Abdul. Dog rescue is a passion for Kelley and she volunteers her time to The Rescue Train and Saving K9 lives, Los Angeles based rescues.
