Kelly is a St. Louis native who had been living in Washington, DC for the better part of 7 years. It was there that she found her passion for experiential events through planning White House Easter Egg Rolls, cross country mobile tours for the manufacturing industry and global retail pop-ups for PokémonGO. When she’s not on the job, she enjoys floral design, binging on reality TV and exploring her new home—Chicago. She’s never short of a quality metaphor and usually knows the closest dive bar from wherever she is.
