Lauren Behan

Design Associate — Portland

Lauren’s favorite part of her role is “translating inspiration into installation;” taking the client’s vision and designer’s concept and turning it into a language that our project managers and carpenters can understand and execute. With a particular interest in technical design and project management, she plays a key role on her design team with product research, material selections, and design and construction plans.

Lauren has degrees in Fine Art, French, and Residential Design and is a Chief Architect Certified Professional. Before joining Neil Kelly, she worked as a residential designer and project manager, and also as a professional photographer. In her spare time, you’ll likely find her paddle boarding, cross-country skiing, or backpacking with her dog Maggie.
