Kelly was on the fast track to a law degree until she decided to give it all up for a life of traveling, climbing, and adventure. She was born and raised in Colorado and graduated from the University of Colorado with degrees in Geography and Psychology, and a minor in Philosophy. During her time at CU, her summers were spent living out of her not-so-trusty Jeep collecting tree core samples in the backcountry of Montana, while spending the school year working at The Spot Bouldering Gym and skipping class to climb rocks. Now, out of school, she spends most of her time wrestling pebbles (bouldering) throughout the Front Range and trying to find new spots to climb, fish, and hike. She is passionate about all things outdoors and hopes to share this love with anyone who will listen.
