Born and raised in Western North Carolina, Kelly has worked in various butcher shops around the Asheville area since 2016. She is passionate about the people and land of Southern Appalachia, and is currently working as a butcher at Hickory Nut Gap while also getting her Masters of Divinity at Duke University. It is her ultimate hope to bi-vocationally serve rural areas as both a whole animal butcher and a pastor. Kelly’s favorite cut of meat is the bavette steak, and she believes that one of life’s simple pleasures is pulling the flat iron steak clean off the bone of a beef forequarter.
