Kelly graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Wildlife Conservation and Entomology. While at UD, she discovered the world of avian research and fell in love with chasing birds around the woods. After a few years traveling and working as a field research technician, Kelly was inspired to pursue a career in Environmental Education.
