Kelly's earliest experiences in production were as a performer throughout middle and high school.  An accomplished vocalist and actress to this day, Kelly had leading roles in musicals for a decade before walking away on top to start her family after a star turn as Marty Marashino in Grease in college.
Kelly has five children who were the center of her life through their growing years. As the children were in their elementary grades, in addition to keeping her family prim, proper, and punctual, Kelly began leading the children's choir at the church in a volunteer role.  When her oldest was a junior in high school, Kelly took another volunteer role, running the post-prom celebration at the high school. This was a role she held for eight years, with each year's event being bigger than the last, and Kelly consistently excelled at having the project done on time and within budget.
Finally, when the youngest child was in high school, Kelly began to get back into work part time.  Still maintaining her primary priority of 'being there' for the children, Kelly worked for several years as a stylist assistant and a prop stylist. This experience became the foundation for her understanding of what goes into the successful execution of a video or print production.
