Last Meal on Earth:

Favorite quote:

“I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” – Michael Scott

Favorite part of your job:

I’m limited here with how much I can tell you about why I love my job… But here it goes: I love getting to create projects, have great conversations and dream up new ideas for our community. And it doesn’t get much better than working with a group of people that don’t take themselves too seriously, but work incredibly hard to create opportunities to connect people to Jesus.


A Little More About Kelly:
Kelly grew up in Charlottesville and moved to Richmond to attend VCU in 2010. She is proudly born in New York and can still pull off the accent when prompted in just the right setting. Kelly graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising in 2013 and has been working within fashion and other odd jobs around Richmond since. She had her first taste of ministry back in college when she led Young Life in Hanover County for 4 years – where she quickly learned among many other things, that indeed, she might always be mistaken for a high schooler.
Kelly is passionate about creating joyful experiences, growth in community and making sure people feel welcomed. When she is not at Hill City, you can find her researching all about sustainable fashion, watching The Office on Netflix, running around The Fan and rallying a group to play games – all while laughing.
