Position: Next Generation Advisory Council Member

Kelly grew up in South Florida, chasing critters in tidepools starting at a young age. She continued to seek experiences in nature and developed a passion for conservation in her adolescence. It wasn't until she went with Outward Bound to Colorado that she learned how to hike and camp, and she has been in love ever since. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2010 with a degree in Environmental Sciences. She continued her journey to spend time outdoors, finding herself working as a research technician from Florida to Colorado to Zambia post-graduation. At the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, she focuses on analytical skills, qualitative analysis, and entrepreneurship. She hopes to use these skills for the Next Gen Council to provide new audiences access to the Trail and ATC.
