When she is not organizing something, Kelly is hanging out with her family or volunteering at Honor Flight of the Cape Fear Area, a non-profit organization that honors WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War-era Veterans by taking them to Washington, D.C., for a day of remembrance as they visit the memorials and monuments built in their honor. Kelly also enjoys collecting pig stuff. Why pigs? Because pigs are awesome!
