Kelly grew up with a big family in Florida, one of nine kids. She acted in every school play from kindergarten through high school, performed in many local community theater productions and when Hollywood came to her small town in Florida she got her first opportunity to work on a feature film, as a featured extra player. She moved to Los Angeles after a brief stint at college but felt New York City was where she needed to study theater/acting and perform on stage. NYC was an excellent tool for acting training as well as life training but after a few years she was summoned back to LA by an acting friend and is presently living in LA. She has had the privilege to study with some amazing acting coaches both in NYC and LA and is thrilled to have recently studied with Deborah Aquila, Stella Adler Technique. A recent nomination as "BEST ACTRESS IN A SHORT FILM” at the Method Fest 2010 for the lead role in the 34 minute short film 'Turn Around', a woman who tries to reconcile society's expectations of her as a wife and mother with her secret desire to fulfill her exhibitionist fantasies, but soon finds herself weaving the tangled web of a double life, has brought forth an awareness of the depth of acting Kelly is capable of achieving. The role of 'Christy Logan' gave her an opportunity to portray a woman wracked with human despair, major insecurities and desperate lifestyle struggles. Kelly shares the honor of being nominated “BEST ACTRESS IN A SHORT FILM” at the Method Fest in 2010 with Naomi Watts who was nominated and won “BEST ACTRESS IN A SHORT FILM” at the Method Fest in 2001 for 'Ellie Parker'. "Turn Around" also premiered at the Cannes Film Festival (Short Film Corner), the Portland’s Women’s Festival (POW) and the Seoul International Film Festival.
