KELSEY KALINE

MHC/MPL Fall 2019

“I’m drawn to heritage conservation both from my fascination with architecture but also with how historic spaces can be used to benefit future generations.”


Kelsey Kaline, a first-year dual degree student at USC in Planning and Heritage Conservation.


Background

I grew up in Detroit, Michigan and have always had a fascination with place-making and history. I did my undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University in sustainable development and studied abroad in Costa Rica and did research in Cusco, Peru.

 

Los Angeles

Since moving to Los Angeles, I’ve settled in the Pacific Electric Building in the Historic Core of Downtown and have loved getting to know the city and its unique spaces. I’m drawn to heritage conservation both from my fascination with architecture but also with how historic spaces can be used to benefit future generations. I can’t wait to bring enthusiasm for hands-on experience and appetite for research to the MHC program.
