Kelly is a mother of three large young men, and they are why she wanted to start the REC. Kelly graduated from Selinsgrove Area High School, Franklin & Marshall College, and Tulane University School of Social Work with a Master's degree and Certificate in Gerontology. After years of working with the senior population, Kelly and her husband, Steve, had those three boys, and Kelly realized the importance of supporting the social and emotional health of our youth and the lack of opportunities for that in our area. With a team of community members, we began the Regional Engagement Center in 2016 to meet that need.
