A little about Kelly

A self-identified “Farm Girl”, Kelly grew up in-between Washington and Riverside where she graduated from Highland High-school. She now lives in the country in the same area with her 3 sons and 2 daughters. Two of which are TWINS! Her children provide ample opportunity to practice her biggest passion, Fitness! She can often be found giving her time as a YMCA Fitness Instructor, M-P Athletic Booster, or helping our community flourish as a board member of the Washington Economic Development Group. 

At KCTC, Kelly introduces KCTC to anyone who will listen! “I’m always spreading the word on how amazing we are and what KCTC is capable of.  I love chatting with a customer and getting them excited about what KCTC has on the table to provide them.” She stated. “I love working at KCTC because we are always thinking ahead and trying to be one step ahead of customers on what we can offer and being knowledgeable about it.  The passion of the employees is amazing. “KCTC cares, from our front office staff to our back office staff to management, all employees sincerely care about our customers and doing the best we can to be the best cooperative in town.” 

When asked what she feels the most accomplished for during her time at KCTC she answered, “Building out into a neighboring town is an amazing thing KCTC is always being forward thinking and the extra effort they give to potential members that we might be able to get to by applying for a grant is amazing.” In closing Kelly mentioned, “When it comes to technology there are no limits, everything is changing in a blink of an eye and that is what makes this such an amazing and fun profession.”
