Over the last 20 years of her professional career, Kelly has filled roles in both the nonprofit and corporate sector.  With a Business degree from Texas State, she has held positions with CyberTrader, The Austin American Statesman and The Coalition of Texans with Disabilities.  Her most recent focus has been volunteering her time with various local nonprofits, teaching Sunday school and playing an active role in her children’s elementary school.

After being introduced to Candlelight Ranch by a friend in 2018, she was drawn to become more involved as the ranch’s mission speaks to her beliefs on the positive impact that nature and being outdoors can do for ones wellbeing.

During her free time with friends and family, Kelly loves to hike, swim, kayak and generally anything that requires being outdoors.
