Vanessa grew up wanting to be an architect. Later, she found her real draw to real estate and design was fueled by her love for spaces that produced core memories and experiences. It wasn’t directly creating the spaces but being a conduit for people to access them. She's always ready for conversation, so let her know what project you are wanting to bring into reality and she will connect you to the right people on our team.
Kelly has been with Riley Projects since 2014. She has been at every touch point of our projects and is now growing with the team as our Project Manager. Her passion for cooking and testing recipes has translated over to finding the perfect blend of ingredients and methods to successfully deliver quality products for our clients.

Karen is the perfect example of “do what you love, love what you do”. She loves being an architect and helping people bring their dreams to life. She’s on a mission, alongside Riley Projects, to create beautiful buildings while solving complex environmental and social problems through architecture.
