Kelly moved to North Carolina from Ohio over 17 years ago and loves exploring her new home state from the mountains to the sea! After living in several areas of the Triangle, she is proud to have settled into Apex with her husband of 17 years, Brian, their two sons, a rescue dog and 5 chickens. She graduated from Miami University and is still a Cleveland sports fan but also cheers on her new teams- the Hurricanes and Panthers! She volunteers at church, school, Boy Scouts, and is an advocate for all children-especially those with a disability or critically ill. She helped create the Carolina Sled Hockey team (the first adaptive hockey program in NC) and is on the leadership team of the Red Balloon Project. She believes in working hard and playing hard and can usually be found enjoying her downtime on or near the water with her family and friends.
