The many players, coaches, managers and administrators who have played for and worked with Kelly over the years attest to the dedicated, passionate, loyal person Kelly is both on and off the court.

Kelly and I are lifelong friends. Simply put, she would do anything for anyone. Coming from a large, close and loving family, she treats her nieces and nephews as her own.That is no great surprise. However, she would do anything for one of my children as if they were her own also. Living several states away and not getting the chance to catch up as often as we would like, Kelly would never let an opportunity pass without hearing everything that was going on with us, and not just by talking to me. She loves talking to the kids directly, whether it is the high school kid playing basketball, or making a decision about college, or the little kid getting ready for the first day of 1st grade. Kelly loves kids, young and old, and wants to hear and share in any way she can, any advice that might help that child/teen/young adult succeed in any way – in school, on a court or field, in an office – whatever circumstance fits that situation. She loves to see others become the best they can be. Her success speaks for itself, and she has shared its secrets with many along the way.
