Kelly Walker, Associate AIA

Design Professional – Architecture

Kelly supervised construction for several interior build-out projects and was the lead designer for the Ochsner Medical Clinic in Lake Terrace. She continues to work towards good design that meets the client’s needs and budget.

A native of Tupelo, Mississippi, Kelly graduated from Mississippi State University and moved to Charleston, SC where she practiced with a small design firm, with a focus on mixed use, residential and low-income housing. She moved to New Orleans in 2012 and acquired experience in historic tax credits, historic renovation, hospitality, civic, interiors, and medical design.

Kelly lives in downtown New Orleans, and enjoys the convenience of being steps away from everything. She finds her creative outlet by painting or weaving on her rigid heddle loom. You can also find her on the tennis courts, out for a run, or in the gym. Kelly is an active member of several local organizations, including AIA New Orleans, WIA New Orleans, Kohlmeyer Circle- Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Krewe of Iris. She also loves quality time with her pup, Jackson, who comes to work with her on many Fridays.
