Kelly’s favorite things

Kelly’s favorite TV show is Monk and her favorite movie is Monster’s Inc. Her favorite song is “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac and her favorite novel is Joshua by Joseph Girzone. She is most inspired by her mother. Kelly says her most-treasured keepsake is her guitar, which she named Charlie.

Kelly’s favorite thing to do in the Wenatchee Valley, besides Apple Blossom, is singing at local wineries, events and markets. Her proudest moment in life was when her single “Beloved” reached 115,000 streams in over one hundred countries. If Kelly could trade places with anyone for a day, she would trade places with the producer of any Disney movie.

Why Kelly?

Kelly feels she should represent the Wenatchee Valley because she deeply appreciates her hometown. She says she wants to represent the Valley as Royalty because she embodies community spirit and is a kind and caring role model to all.
