Kelley is a born & raised New Yorker who has been performing ever since her seminal role on the classic kids show "A Little Curious" for HBO - in which she wore head-to-toe lime green and came very close to successfully rolling a bowling ball without falling down. 

Her second foray into the business, playing The Penguin Juror in "The Trial of Goldilocks" at the Ogunquit Playhouse, raised the stirring question, "If the story of Goldilocks takes place in the woods and the rest of the cast is made up of forest-appropriate animals, why is there a tiny penguin stage right?". 

Kelley, whose mom is a coloratura soprano, took to opera and musical theatre early on and spent 7 years training classically. Her 9 year old dream (according to her "Secret Me" diary) of becoming a Bernadette Peters-Christina Aguilera-Ella Fitzgerald-David Bowie hybrid also led her to start writing music and training in pop, rock & jazz. She now regularly plays around NYC with her band, Daisy the Great.
