Kelly Danz, AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Kelly is selflessly dedicated to social impact and sustainable design. Growing up with an ever-present issue of vacancy in Baltimore inspired Kelly to contribute to a solution through architecture. She brings a unique perspective to projects after completing a voluntary year of service in AmeriCorps working for Habitat for Humanity on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She leverages her experience and technical abilities to ensure social, environmental, and economic project goals are met. She currently chairs AIA Baltimore’s Lecture Series and serves on the Board of the Neighborhood Design Center. Kelly’s unwavering heart for Baltimore is shown through her work, community involvement, and the restoration of her very own vacated rowhouse.
