Kelly may be new to Texas, but she's always had a passion for animals. Born and raised in Michigan, she was always fascinated with wildlife, growing up fishing with family and going to Girl Scout camp at every opportunity. Her family moved to North Carolina while she was in high school, where she earned a bachelor's degree in Wildlife Conservation from NC State University. From there she participated in several internships - from counting cacti in Minnesota (no, really!) to tagging horseshoe crabs in Massachusetts, as well as several seasons monitoring shorebird populations along the east and gulf coasts. She moved to the DFW area on Christmas Day, 2015, and has been learning to be a Texan ever since. She worked for a city shelter long enough to adopt her pittie mix Lucy before joining the crew at Southlake Animal Hospital in March of 2019. When she has a minute to slow down, she enjoys hobbies like reading, bird-watching and exploring the nature parks in the area, and spoiling her 1-year-old niece, Maya.
