Kelly loves the outdoors. She likes to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, camp, hike, bike, kayak, water-ski and in-line skate. She has passed on a love of these activities to her daughters, Courtney and Anya. She has lived in the Grand Traverse area for almost 19 years, being born and raised in the Flint area. Kelly has a BS in Resource Planning & Management from the University of Michigan, which is foundational for work in landscape design, which she did for almost ten years before staying home for five years to raise her daughters.
Kelly's experiences in recycling programs inspired her to start her own venture - RecycleChicken.com. She currently works for American Waste as Director of Marketing and PR. Being a single mom, seeing the potential in everything, being inspired by what she sees is possible and loving a challenge makes her the perfect star to raise funds and awareness for Single MOMM.
