Kelly graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in English and German (1993) and continued to pursue her foreign language interest while earning her M.A. in German Literature (1998). Working as a graduate teaching assistant for the UGA Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages ignited her undeniable passion for educating others.

Kelly has been a member of the BFA community since 1999 and enjoys teaching all levels of English and German. She also works as an Assistant Dean and Academic Advisor. When she is not at BFA, Kelly can often be seen with a camera in her hands. “Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.” - Hermann Hesse
