Kelly grew spent half of her childhood in Bloomington, Illinois, and the other half in Fort Myers, Florida. At UCLA, she is part of Society of Women Engineers, the Biomedical Engineering Society, Bruin Medical Entrepreneurs, and Best Buddies. Outside of school, Kelly likes to work out, hike, and spend time outdoors! She loves learning new things, such as finding new podcasts and reading textbooks outside of her field of interest. She enjoys tutoring because she believes that it can make a huge impact on the younger generation—she hopes to share her love of knowledge and learning to her tutees with the goal of fostering the same intellectual curiosity within her students!
