A native Rhode Islander hailing from Little Compton Kelly enjoys the beach and all things summer. When not at work you can find her on a hike or nature trail, traveling, or curled up with a good book. Kelly currently resides in Cranston with her partner, their cat Alfredo, and more houseplants than she can count!
