Upon moving to Old Mission Peninsula on East Bay full-time in 2013 with her husband, Kevin, Kelly knew that she wanted to contribute to the community and quickly discovered that The Grand Traverse Conservation district met her idea of a perfect fit.
Kelly has held diverse positions in the public and private sectors, including roles in Cost Accounting and Information Systems. She retired as a Financial Analyst for The Dow Chemical Company.
In addition to her current role as a docent at the GTCD, Kelly also spends her time as a Master Gardener volunteer and tends an organic garden at the Traverse City Community Garden at the Historic Barns Park.
Kelly enjoys kayaking, cross country skiing, biking and any outdoor activity that the beautiful Grand Traverse Region has to offer.
