She recently accepted the Noah's House Treasurer role due to her back office experience managing finances and oversight of complex contracts.

She recently experienced the loss of her uncle Robert who passed away last November due to complications from alcohol addiction.
Kelly works side by side with her brother John and the Noah's House team to provide access to support systems, a safe and stable environment, as well as the certain belief that people can change as long as you never give up hope.
