Kelly has always had a love for children. At a young age, she learned to babysit alongside her older sister. At the time, she would sneak upstairs to wake the little ones from a nap just so she could play with them! The passion she had then for engaging with young children never stopped. As a graduate of the University of Vermont with a Bachelor of Science in early childhood education, Kelly has worked in a Harvard-affiliated Reggio Emilio based infant through the pre-kindergarten program as well as a developmental specialist for early intervention within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. She is now a mom to three busy boys and resides in Beverly, MA. With a background in music and dance, she couldn’t be happier enriching so many young children through the classes and programs she offers with Wiggles and Giggles. In her spare time, she is an active PTO member at two different schools and creates charcuterie/grazing boards for her small business, Grazed and Confused. Kelly also has a true passion for traveling the world and loves getting creative at home with interior design as well as making personalized items/gifts.
