Kelly was born and raised in Jeffersonville, a rural town in upstate New York in which her family has deep roots. She lives with her exceedingly good-looking husband, her talented son with an old soul, and spoiled feral-turned-housecat. When she isn’t spending time with her family, she keeps busy as a high school assistant track coach (Go Bulldogs!) or as the president of the local youth football organization (Go Red Dogs!). Kelly has a bachelor’s in Sociology, attended graduate school for Social Science, and has a copyeditor’s certificate from Writer’s Digest University. She is currently finishing her English degree at SNHU.
Kelly has struggled with self-confidence and body image through most of her life. Like most people, traumas from childhood and experiences with unhealthy relationships have shaped who she is today. Kelly has written stories and memoirs about growing up and struggling to find herself. She also spends time reading and writing book reviews on her blog, as well as taking amateur photos and freelance editing for independent authors.
After her son was born, Kelly decided to leave her dead-end and thankless job as a principal’s secretary to put her energy into taking care of her family. It’s important to her that her son grows up in a positive environment. Transitioning to life as a stay-at-home mom was not the smoothest and she will be the first to admit that she has made plenty of mistakes, but learning is half the fun, right?
