Since 2008, Kelly has worked as a freelance writer and editor for corporations, small businesses, bloggers, and other writers. She began her career by teaching English Language Arts for public and private high school and middle school students. 

Kelly most closely identifies as a reader — she loves books and libraries and book shops. She loves to talk about books and write about books and recommend books to others. She has homeschooled her three children from the get-go, so coming to Studio Prep has been a blessing to her entire family.
