kelly cainKelly was raised in Jacksonville, Florida; at a young age she had the opportunity to experience the outdoors through spending time in state and national parks with her family.  Her love for the great outdoors grew through many camping and hiking adventures and spending time in the countless natural amenities Florida offers. Wishing to preserve, protect and enhance this natural environment so that others could enjoy it as well, Kelly began her career in landscape architecture by obtaining a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Florida in 2012.  Her continued desire to learn and personal interest in horticulture and landscape architecture lead her to pursue career opportunities while in college through volunteering with the Jacksonville Zoo & Garden’s horticulture department, working as a research assistant with UF’s Environmental Horticulture Department, an internship with a landscape architecture firm in Indianapolis, and working as a propagator in a nursery.  These experiences enabled her to begin her career in Austin, TX, where she gained experience on various project types including, community, healthcare, mixed use and urban design, and also public realm projects.  Upon moving to Charleston with her husband, Michael, (and dog, Hudson), Kelly joined Remark in January 2015.  Kelly approaches her personal life with the same creativity she uses in her developing professional career.
