Kelly grew up in Fitchburg, moving to New Ipswich, NH in 1991, where she was a graduate of Mascenic High School in New Ipswich. She later resided in Peterborough, NH before moving to Hinsdale in 2007.

A talented artist, Kelly extended her creativity to sketching and drawing, as well as tattoo designing, applying her creations onto many seeking her unique designs. She loved the holiday’s, decorating her home for each occasion, especially Halloween. Kelly had a special fondness of animals, especially cats. Being outdoors, exploring what nature has to offer, especially with her daughters, was special to Kelly. She loved the ocean, and found great solace and happiness there.
