Kelsey was born and raised in a small Texas town and was able to both run fast and turn left in high school. That skill led her to the University of Alabama to compete in both cross country and track for four years. Kelsey graduated in 2012 with a major of Communication Studies and Minor in Food & Nutrition...so you could say she primarily learned how to run, eat and talk in college. Immediately after graduation she moved to Colorado for "only 6 months," but has been here ever since. Kelsey had the incredible opportunity to work full time for Camp Timberline over the last few years, but left in 2017 to pursue full time ministry. She started at First Pres in August of 2017 as a youth ministry intern, and has since moved into her new role as the assistant director of University Ministry.
