Mom & Community Volunteer
Kelly was born in Knoxville, TN and grew up in Cincinnati, OH. She relocated to Boca Raton nearly 20 years ago with her husband Will. Kelly has a BA from Furman University, a graduate degree in Christian Studies from Regent College at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and a MA in French Literature from the University of Cincinnati, where she taught French. Kelly subsequently worked as a management consultant, first for Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) and later PriceWaterhouseCoopers, implementing enterprise software for global companies.
After retiring from the corporate world to focus on raising her 2 sons, William and David, Kelly has been an engaged volunteer throughout the community. She served over 10 years in the Women’s Ministry at Spanish River Church, served 2 years as the President of the PTA at Spanish River Christian School, and is now actively involved at Saint Andrew’s School, chairing this year’s school auction. She currently serves on the Boards of both Impact 100 and the Golden Bell Education Foundation, an initiative of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. Kelly is also very involved with Place of Hope, where she served two years as the Angel Mom President, currently serves on the Angel Mom Leadership Board and Place of Hope Advisory Board, co-chaired 8 events, funded the Kelly Woods Fleming Cottage for Boys, and in 2019 was awarded the prestigious Hero of Hope award. Kelly has a heart for foster children, aged out foster children, and otherwise homeless young adults. She also values education and is grateful for the opportunity to partner with the George Snow Scholarship Fund to give local youth an opportunity to earn a scholarship to college or trade school!
On a personal note, Kelly enjoys time with family and friends, travel and exercising. She recently joined her 2 teenage sons and her husband in Ninja Warrior competitions, is currently ranked #9 nationally in the Masters Female division, and looks forward to competing in the World Championships in late June. Kelly hopes her ninja training will help her on the dance floor, especially considering she last danced at her wedding 22 years ago!
