Kelly fell in love with UMH due to the warmth and sense of community she felt when exploring the campus. The feeling helped her decide to move her grandmother to Wesley Village. The feeling also enticed Kelly, her mother and her daughter to all become volunteers. Years later, an employment opportunity arose and Kelly jumped at the chance to show her love for the aging! She accepted a Front Desk position, moving to Administrative Assistant and then her current role as Activities Director. “Witnessing the joy of a resident who is thriving and experiencing a true quality of life is what it’s all about! They are all my family here at Crosby. Their excitement, curiosity and happiness is heartwarming and extremely rewarding to the soul! “ In her spare time Kelly enjoys having fun with her family. She is a wife to Tom, a mother to Thomas, Zach and Karly and (most recently) a gramma to her newest family member Avery!
