She graduated from Frederick High School in 1985, where she excelled both academically and musically. She was Frederick Junior Sweetheart in 1982, sponsored by Xi Alpha Chi, Beta Sigma Phi and Miss Frederick 1983. Her talent as a beautiful singer led her to perform in plays such as “South Pacific”. She pursued her desire to become a professional Christian interpreter at West Texas State University. Her career as an artist has taken her to Nashville Musical Productions and various cruise ships. She later worked as a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines and as a tour guide for Village Travel and Tours. A career change led her to work as CNA, CMA for hospitals and retirement centers. She still found time to sing for her boarders.
Kelly married Perry Smalts in March 2000. Her son, Andrew, was born of this union and was her pride and joy.
