Growing up in Caswell County, Kelsey learned to love the outdoors as well as animals. At a young age she always knew she wanted to work with animals. She attended Liberty University to pursue a bachelors degree in zoo and wildlife biology.
While in school, she had the opportunity to intern at a wildlife rehabilitation center and a zoo. While she loves caring for all species of animals, her favorite one to spend time with is her beagle named Copper. During her free time, she enjoys hiking and playing volleyball.
