We are a unique and interesting group of people here at 317Grow, and we love it. As our clients, you may only get to meet a handful of our team members, and even then you may not get to know them very well. We're aiming to help you get to know some of our team members better this spring as we roll into the new season. We picked 20 interesting questions to ask our team, so look for these posts added to our usual mix every now and again. Today we'll get to know a little more about Kelsey, our studio manager and design assistant. Kelsey went to Ball State for Landscape Architecture, and she has been with us since 2014.

What is the luckiest thing that has happened to you?
A few years ago, on a camping trip out west, my best friend and I won the last two passes to hike through “The Wave” in Arizona. Only 10 permits per day are issued, and we got called for the very last spot, on the only available day we had to do this hike. It’s a desert hike with no marked trail, to a very cool rock formation you may recognize from Microsoft Windows desktops. (Google: The Wave Arizona)
