Kelly is a Sebastian River High School Graduate, earning the Shark Pride Award in her junior year. She volunteered as a cheerleading coach for the then Sebastian Panthers (now Sebastian Sharks) youth football program. Kelly lettered in golf, played basketball, took Honors & Dual Enrollment classes, but was most active in the TV Production Program. Kelly videotaped & directed local school board meetings, Prism concerts and hosted a local teen talk show to showcase Sebastian area teens doing positive things. Fun fact, Kelly also taught at SRHS, in the same classroom and the same program she took 15 years prior! She can't hide that Shark pride and looks forward to the day when her children will proudly wear their silver and blue, too.
Married to her college sweetheart for over 16 years, Kelly and John have two children, Kaitlyn (12) and Alden (9). She is a ballet mom, running their daughter 20 hours each week to pre-professional training in Eau Gallie. When not at the ballet studio, she is on the golf course with their son who is involved locally with IRGF. Kelly also helps her mom (disabled) on weekends when she showcases her art at Riverview Park through the Sebastian Craft Club. As a family they enjoy boating and fishing in the lagoon, taking in local festivals and dining at local restaurants.
Over the years Kelly and her husband have served as coach/team mom of Sebastian River Area Little League baseball and Sebastian Soccer Association teams. Kelly started a Girl Scout Troop at a local Elementary School that is still active today. Kelly volunteers regularly at Treasure Coast Elementary and served on the board of their PTA. Her family donates annually to Toys for Tots and the Food Pantry.
The least known and the youngest of the candidates running for Sebastian City Council, I have decided to launch a video series.
I understand why our citizens may be skittish towards a candidate that has yet to serve on City Council, after what happened in 2019-2020, so I will drop one every week... my last one will be Halloween! I can assure you I am the right one for the job.
Sebastian is my hometown and I hope it will be for many generations of my family to come.
In this video, I focus on the the reasons I have chosen to run for Sebastian City Council. I am eager to work with Fred Jones, Chris Nunn, Bob McPartlan, and the other elected candidate to make decisions that will benefit our community. Again, I thank you all for your support! Everyone who is continuing to talk about me to their neighbors, host a sign, and share my posts are working towards a bright future for Sebastian. Stay safe & have a great week!
The first of four videos where I share how I plan to work with City Council and what I bring to the table. A Community Mentorship Program and enhancing the way the city communicates to the citizens.
If elected to Sebastian City Council, I will work in a collaborate effort with our city and community, to guide our growth.
My apologies for the delay on my video this week, I have been under the weather and had nearly lost my voice.
In this video, I share some updates, my thoughts on some recent decisions and clarify the facts on the annexation. I'll be out and about Sebastian over the weekend... Stay healthy, y'all!
