Kelly Nelson

Project Manager, Portland

Kelly appreciates that construction is diverse and always evolving, enjoying the new opportunities and challenges brought by each unique project. She joined Lewis in 2005 and has worked on countless projects since, but a few of her favorites have been Union Way, Beaverton City Hall, Smarsh and Stoel Rives. She says the most rewarding part of a project is having a client be overjoyed. As a mother of two, she has learned how to be empathetic while still getting things done. She always keeps this quote in mind: “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We only have today. Let us begin.”
