Kelsy was employed as an administrative assistant by Insign Association Management. She loved people and enjoyed her friends and family, especially her 3 adorable nieces, Norah, Emery, and Clare. Kelsy was always planning a birthday bash, a river rafting trip or trips to different states to explore their history and try the local menu. Kelsy had a heart for others and always knew the right words to comfort and encourage her friends and family. She entertained her loved ones with her blogs and posts on Facebook and Snapchat. Kelsy was a shining example of sweetness and gentleness on her cancer journey. She highlighted special moments by writing journal entries sharing her experiences on CaringBridge. She added enough humor to make you smile and wisdom to make you think. Kelsy had a way of capturing her readers attention and touching their lives with her strength and faith. Even in her final months, Kelsy's attitude was evidence of her deep faith in Christ and was an encouragement to everyone. She lived her life in great anticipation of heaven and many people were blessed because she lived daily in the joy that comes from her faith.
