Kelly graduated with honors from Siena in 1993 with a BBA in Accounting and went on to earn an MBA from Union in 1994. She became licensed as a CPA in 1999.
Kelly has prepared fiduciary and personal income tax returns every year since 1995, in addition to developing a bookkeeping practice for several businesses.
Raising three children who are now 19, 16 and 13, Kelly chose to work per diem for Capital District accounting firms rather than pursue a partnership track so that she could maintain some flexibility for her family's schedule. She will continue to provide bookkeeping services to her business clients with whom she has worked for the past 10 - 15 years.
Kelly, her husband and their family live in Clifton Park.
