Kelly is a proud Hokie! She graduated in 1993 with a B.S. in Business and majored in Management Science – Productions and Operations Management. She was born and raised in Charlottesville and followed in her brother’s footsteps, attending Virginia Tech. Kelly served for 15 years as the Vice President overseeing marketing, public relations, fundraising, volunteers, and public policy for Goodwill Industries of the Valleys and has recently joined Roanoke City Schools as the Executive Director of Communications and Marketing. She has a grown son, and she and her husband reside in Roanoke with his two teenage sons, and their rescue fur-babies. A fun fact is that her high school graduation was held in U-Hall at the University of Virginia and her college commencement was in Cassell Coliseum at Virginia Tech!
