Kelle is a lifelong member of Sharon UMC. She has spent 25+ years working in children’s ministry at Sharon. Kelle “retired” from BMW Manufacturing in 2014 after 18 years to be a stay at home mom. In 2016 the opportunity to work with the children of Sharon in an official capacity became available. Kelle jumped at the opportunity to answer the call that God had placed on her heart many years ago. The best part of her job is not only teaching the children about the love of Christ but also learning about his love through their eyes!

She and her husband Anthony have four daughters and two grandchildren that keep her on the run! Kelle loves family time with her crazy crew. During her free time Kelle and her husband enjoy traveling, road biking and finding new restaurants to try. She also enjoys Braves baseball and has a goal of visiting all of the MLB Parks one day.
