Kelly comes from a hard-working Midwestern family whose parents live in Florida full time, as well as a younger brother and an identical twin sister. Sadly, her twin died of breast cancer at 35, which is why she is so dedicated to supporting cancer causes. In honor of her sister, Kelly created a program called “Referring with a Reason,” which allows her to give money to a charity of choice to keep her sister’s memory alive.
