Kelly's personal mission statement "is to empower youth with the life skills needed to break the generational cycle of self-destruction". This passion, combined with the knowledge of a human trafficking epidemic sweeping silently and strategically across our "safe" communities has ignited a fierce call to action to force change from suburbia to Capitol Hill.

 

In 2007 Kelly authored the popular Christian-based book, Tools 4 Teens. The following year she developed an 8-week Tools 4 Teens curriculum which successfully launched through HISD, serving disadvantaged youth. Over the following several years the program focused exclusively on male juvenile offenders within Harris County Juvenile Probation, resulting in a sharp decrease in recidivism among program graduates. The Tools 4 Teens Re-Entry Program followed in 2013 which provided re-entry support to youth, including mentoring, academic accountability and social enrichment.

 

Kelly received her Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Communications, with a concentration in Psychology, from Ohio University in 1988. A college internship serving victims of domestic violence first sparked her interest in an at-risk population. Her deep compassion for hurting and vulnerable youth are the driving forces behind her call to serve as a non-profit leader.

 

In 2017 and 2018, Katy Magazine honored Kelly as Top 100 Women of Katy. In December 2017, Katy Magazine named Kelly Top 10 Outstanding Katy People of the Year.

 

Kelly and her college sweetheart, Alan have called Katy home for 20 years. They have two children, ages 17 and 19.
