Kelly grew up in Ohio, but has always loved exploring Colorado. She graduated in spring 2020 from the Ohio State University with her degree in environmental science and ecosystem restoration. Her goal is to combine her passion for science, the environment, and teaching into her future career. Kelly has found herself working as a teaching assistant for an environmental science course, a research assistant, and as a summer naturalist at Walking Mountains Science Center in 2019.
Kelly is excited to return to Colorado this summer and hopes to teach high school students about the natural resources field. In her free time she enjoys hiking, biking, climbing, camping, and painting. Kelly is ready for another season where she can spend more time outside exploring Colorado.
