While she felt lucky to be a key player in building a successful business and found the work very rewarding, it wasn’t her calling. After having renovated several investment homes and doing some interior design work for friends as a favor, it was clear that interior design is a something that Kelley has a passion for and comes naturally. Cut to 2010 and her son is now grown and doing well and Kelley has found herself in need of starting something new. She got her education from Interior Design Institute in Newport Beach and is a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association. She has enjoyed helping her clients’ realize their dreams of having a beautifully designed space. Her mission is to improve the lives of people by helping create beautiful, functional and comfortable spaces in the most cost effective manner while making the design process fun.
Kelley is also a professional singer. Something she’s been doing since childhood when her Mother taught her and her sisters how to harmonize. Her singing career has happened organically. She was offered a job to sing background with a large group for New Year’s Eve in 2004 and she’s been working ever since. She has a single on iTunes called “Where Does The Love Go” under the name Kelley Marie.
Kelley’s dream is to start a non-profit that donates furniture and housewares, and teaches life skills to people transitioning from halfway houses and battered women’s shelters.

Jazzmin Sam'araye Harris aka “JazRay'e” is an aspiring young pop/r&b recording artist who has dreams of entertaining the world with her gift of voice. Music has been a part of Jaz's life from the very beginning, singing in choirs at such a young age was where her mother noticed her passion and love for music. Soon after, she began singing at family, community, school functions, and talent shows. She pretty much performed at anywhere she could. JazRay'e soon recorded her first hit single “Don't Blame Me” which turned out to be a certified hit. This song won her thousands of fans across the United States and just about every radio station had “Don't Blame Me” playing across their airwaves. It was one of those songs that stuck with you because of the message that the song was portraying, which was “don't hate me because I am cute, don't hate because of the way that I look, and that every girl is beautiful in her on way”. Not too long after that, JazRay'e cranked out another hit called “Teenage Dream”.
