Kelly was born across the country in Washington State. Her father was in the Army, which is what landed her in Newport News, Virginia, when she was two years old. She grew up right along the Warwick River in Newport News and spent most of her days on the river. She is a fur mom to a golden retriever named Cooper, and enjoys spending her time away from work relaxing at the beach, with her dog. She enjoys boating, traveling, painting, and most importantly she loves the New Orleans Saints.
