Kelly was born in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to the United States with her family when she was 9 years old. With her dad in the Army, Kelly grew up in different states all over the country. Moving so much while growing up developed a passion for travel and as an adult she traveled to most states within the United States as well as all over different countries in Europe. She lived in San Fransisco for several years before moving to Rome, Italy and then finally moving back to the United States and settling into South Florida. Kelly studies at Nova Southeastern University, and is working on two masters (M.S.)– one in mental health counseling and another in ABA. Kelly has been working in philanthropies and organizing events for autism for the last 15 years and does not plan on stopping any time soon. Kelly’s goal is to become a licensed BCBA, and continue to work at bettering childrens’ lives. “If I can help give children the tools to develop into happy, fulfilled functioning adults then I have lived a life worth living.”
