While at Rutgers, Kelly also studied abroad in Paris, France as a third-year student. Upon graduating, Kelly moved to San Francisco to study Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising where she graduated cum laude.
From 2012-2014, Kelly worked at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City as a fabric lab assistant. She eventually discovered a passion for teaching and became an instructor at both The Sewing Studio and The New York Sewing Center before becoming a research and development assistant at The Children’s Place world headquarters in Secaucus, New Jersey.
After studying graphic design and coding in San Francisco, Kelly decided to merge her passions and become an educator.

She currently has plans to obtain a Master’s Degree in education.
