Our People Make All The Difference

Behind every JSA project is a team of creative professionals—interns, project managers, architects, designers and others—passionate about good design that makes our communities better.

The Latest Adventures Of

Kelly Stanford, AIA

Kelly hit the ground running almost immediately after joining JSA (appropriate, since she’s an adventure runner in her spare time). She’s our project manager/project architect on Taylor Community Back Bay in Wolfeboro, NH, where she’s supervising the addition of 61,258 SF of assisted living, nursing and memory care to Taylor’s existing independent senior living community. She’s also contributed to our work for Lister Academy, a public high school in Portsmouth, NH, and has jumped into new business development, most recently attending the Leading Age senior living conference in Denver. A mentor for students in Portsmouth High School’s ACE program, Kelly is assisting a new generation of aspiring professionals in the architecture, construction and engineering industry. Ever the motivator, she rallied a group of JSA women last summer to hit the links, organizing a weekly group golf lesson at Pease Golf Course.

“People, functionality, spaces, support systems, aesthetics, structure—they’re all puzzle pieces. I orchestrate and collaborate so all those pieces fit.”
