Kelly grew up in a Christian home in Brazil with her father as a pastor and her mother as a missionary. Her family moved to Boston in 2000 where she later met her husband Renato.
Kelly and Renato moved to Pittsburgh in 2010 and began attending The Bible Chapel in 2011. They currently reside in Peters Township with their three children.
Right after the birth of their first child, Kelly started serving in the children's ministry nursery. Over the years she has served as a VBS crew leader, worship team member, Moms Together finances coordinator and hospitality organizer, foster/adoptive support group participant and Night to Shine volunteer.
As pro-life Christians, Kelly and her family strive to care and shepherd orphans and neglected children. They use this unique platform to share the gospel. She has been working closely with at-risk youth through the Bair Foundation for 5 years and continues to provide a loving, safe home for foster children.
Kelly believes it is her calling to love, minister, and care for children, helping them to develop a close relationship with our Sovereign Lord.
