Kelly is a stay-at-home mom to two boys (ages 7 and 5) living in Rochester NY. Before that, she worked in higher education administration.  When she’s not chasing her kids around, she loves assisting at their elementary school as a literacy volunteer (helping kids grades K-4 with reading/writing skills) and being an enthusiastic (but not scary) PTO mom. She’s also an avid early-morning runner/triathlete.
