Kellie and her boyfriend, Jonny, met in San Luis Obispo while she was obtaining her undergraduate degree. After graduation they moved to San Francisco where they lived for nearly two years. After experiencing city living, they chose to move back to the area and Kellie says, “I’m absolutely in love with Grass Valley’s small town charm and atmosphere and I love all the beautiful trees and nature that surrounds this area.” In her spare time, Kellie loves to be outdoors kayaking, hiking, or driving the backroads and spending time with family and friends, BBQ’ing in the backyard.
