I was born and raised here in Missoula and graduated from Hellgate High School in 2007. In 2009, curiosity led me to Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. I received an Associate Degree in Automotive, Diesel, and Industrial Technologies. I moved back to Missoula after graduation and used my degree working for four years as an automotive technician. After realizing I missed working with others, I resumed coaching children’s gymnastics and accepted a position as a paraeducator at Sentinel High School.
My sister, Carly Kelley, helped my husband Nate and I find our first home in 2016. I never thought I would be able to buy a home at that point in my life. Carly guided us through the process and helped us make sense of the initially overwhelming task. When she asked me to join her in real estate, I loved the idea of helping others find comfort and enjoy the process of buying or selling their home.
