Kelsey began her career as a Student Development Coordinator in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Oklahoma State University. She has a passion for helping students reach and achieve their goals as they prepare for their professional lives after college.

She is a member of the hand bell choir at the First United Methodist Church in Stillwater. She volunteers at Young Professionals of Stillwater events including the United Way Day of Caring, Holiday Heroes and the Stillwater Public Library Summer Kickoff. “Stillwater is a great place to live,” she said. “It has a plethora of events and things going on because of the University, but still has a small town feel to it.”

Her best piece of advice came from her parents. “Work as hard as you can, give it all you’ve got,” Kelsey said. “I hope that my actions always exude that and that the individuals I’ve worked for, or with, can see how important the things I take on are to me.” Kelsey grew up on a large farm and ranch in southwest Kansas. She learned at a young age that it takes a lot of hard work to get things done, and do it right.

I’m honored to be selected as a spotlight professional,” Kelsey said. “I know that there are many others who are more deserving than I am.”
