Our Founder

Not your typical designer, Kelly a California native has no formal education in fashion design.  With degrees in psychology and business management she spent most of her adult life pursuing a traditional career in human resources and payroll management.  Needing a creative outlet and having a love for handbags she created Nepheri.
