Kelsey was born and raised in the Seattle suburb of Maple Valley. She went to college at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA where she studied journalism.
After graduating college in 2013, she moved to downtown Seattle where she worked as a barista for one of Seattle’s original coffee shops, Uptown Espresso, for three years. Seeking a break from the rainy Pacific Northwest, she moved to Denver in October 2016 with the intention of only staying for one year.
An avid snowboarder in the Northwest since age 9, she purchased the Epic Local pass knowing that would give her motivation to get to the mountains to snowboard and have an activity to partake in to meet new friends.
After her first visit to snowboard at Keystone Resort, she quickly realized that her goal would be to make Summit County her forever home. A year later, she was able to secure housing and a job at inxpot in Keystone and make her newfound dream a reality.
Her career in real estate began when she started working at Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate as an Office Marketing Coordinator in 2019. After assisting brokers in the Keystone and Breckenridge SSF offices for a year and a half, she decided to explore property management and began working as a Leasing Coordinator at Wildernest Property Management. She obtained her Colorado Broker’s License in July 2021 and was promoted to Leasing Agent where she managed a portfolio of over 120 properties.
With over a decade of experience in the hospitality industry working in various restaurants and coffee shops, she looks forward to returning to a real estate marketing position in which she can utilize her passion for customer service and the opportunity to help others in the dream of calling Summit County home.
She currently lives in Silverthorne with her 8-year-old Boston Terrier, Kenji. In her free time, she enjoys snowboarding in the winter and running outdoors in the summer.
