“The entire staff was professional, knowledgeable, organized, communicative and most importantly, a real pleasure to work with.”
Mary Anne Kelly
A Calming Presence
Mary Anne has worked alongside Lesly since 2002, helping her shape and grow the company. When clients first engage with Lesly Maxwell Interiors, Mary Anne is the first person they encounter—and from that very first engagement, her calming presence sets the tone. In her current role, she creates the workflows that bring Lesly’s creative visions to life, keeping schedules and itineraries running smoothly as the designs are nurtured from concept to completion. She is a pillar of our firm, and is in many ways the glue that holds the organization together.
Outside of work, Mary Anne loves spending time with her children and grandchildren, and her amazing husband of more than 30 years. She also has a passion for football and baseball and can chat it up at the water cooler with the best of them.
