Kelsey joined the WHNT news team as a multi-media journalist early in 2015, and is so far loving her time reporting in the Tennessee Valley.
Kelsey was born and raised in rainy Portland Oregon, where she lived until she was 18. She attended University of Florida on a soccer scholarship, earned three SEC Championship rings and made it to the NCAA playoffs every year she played.
While at University of Florida, Kelsey discovered her passion for broadcasting, and quickly found her way into the Telecommunications program where she was able to display her passion for news and everything sports. While in school, Kelsey had the privilege of being a voice of WUFTFM , WRUF Sports Radio 850, and ESPN 850/900, in addition to being a Sports Anchor for PBS affiliate WUFT-TV.
After college Kelsey spent two years in Sarasota, Florida as a general assignment reporter for the WSNN, an NBC affiliate.
