Karly grew up in the metro area of Jackson, Mississippi where she took interest in residential design as a child - always sketching floor plans and building things. The process of creating spaces that make great homes led her to study interior design as an elective her senior year of high school, which eventually inspired her decision to attend architecture school.
Karly graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Architecture. She was also on the cheer leading squad (where she cheered for Dak Prescott, go Dawgs and Cowboys!) and a member of the Chi Omega Sorority. Managing school, cheer, and her sorority was always the top priority for Karly. But with her passion for residential design, Karly knew she would need to move to a bigger city to gain experience with a residential firm and Dallas was just the place!
Karly interned for SHM Architects while she was still in school and enjoyed the personal relationships built with clients and the opportunity to create custom designs for their homes. After graduation Karly moved to Dallas to work full time for SHM. In her free time, Karly enjoys spending time with friends, traveling, and getting to know the city of Dallas.
