Jackie Kelly Director of Business Development

Jackie Kelly

(What day is today?)

When I grow up I want to be:

Obviously retired and somewhere tropical!

The last great book I read:

Start With Why, by Simon Sinek

Favorite food:

Italian and Mexican…I also really like Beef Stroganoff which should have its own category!

Significant people:

My daughter, my family and my friends who are like my family!

Favorite movie:

Wizard of Oz (watch it again as an adult, “You are capable of more than you know.”)

Something unique:

My nickname as a child was Bo Jackson! I can sing, dance and play soccer at the same time, it’s a party trick I use to break the ice!
