Kelly is no stranger to the field of music and is excited about the career transition. She spent her childhood as a student of classical piano and was the keyboard player in her high school’s Rock/Blues Ensemble. Her lifelong love of music lead her to RMC, where she enrolled her daughter in Early Childhood music classes and realized how much she enjoyed sharing and experiencing music together. She loves having a position that combines her passion for music with her professional interests and skills.
