Kelly grew up in the vacation destination of Whitefish, MT and she moved to Portland, OR right out of high school. She married her Knight in Shining Armor husband, Michael, whom she met while both were working at Delta Airlines at PDX. They moved to Texas to work at DFW with Delta but returned to the Pacific Northwest (Vancouver WA) after five years of the suffocating Texas heat. Kelly and Mike have five children; four sons and one daughter. Their household also has several fur babies – dogs and cat. As the family was growing, Kelly stayed home to raise the kids. Most of them are now grown and on their own. In 2008 Kelly launched back into the work-force and landed in the world of taxes.
Outside of the office you will find Kelly hanging out with her family and pets, going to the ocean beaches or possibly spending time with her Montana family.
