Kely has been working in the realm of academic technology for over a decade. Prior to joining the Bakken Center for Spirituality and Healing, Kely worked as a classroom teacher for 12 years, primarily teaching secondary-level career and technical education courses. She also spent some time working as an instructional designer for a local company, developing online training for the United States Army and nationwide nonprofit organizations.

One of Kely's favorite things about working with technology is that it is constantly evolving. She loves having to learn new things to stay current, sharing that knowledge with staff and students, and seeing it implemented in a variety of settings.

Outside of work time, Kely enjoys practicing yoga, outdoor activities, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
