Tongue & Groove hired Kelsey Talis as the in-house Interior Designer. Kelsey is a multi-talented, eminently creative and nationally published interior designer with over eight years of experience in the New York, Philadelphia, South Florida and North Carolina areas. She is motivated by her love for design as well as her ability to coordinate, oversee and complete high-caliber projects. Kelsey attended Drexel University where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the dually accredited (CIDA, NASAD) program. Prior to joining the Tongue & Groove team, Kelsey spent over five years in Naples, Florida where she designed and managed numerous high-end residential projects. Kelsey’s education and vast experience have enhanced her ability to set realistic projections, manifest trust, and empathy, construct lasting client relationships, and ultimately exceed expectations by turning design visions into reality.
As a passionate creative and allied ASID professional, Kelsey has a constant desire to enhance her knowledge and skillset in the realm of innovative design, construction and project management. This enthusiasm allows her to view projects from various relevant perspectives and greatly augments her design dexterity.
