With a passion for people, and helping out in the community, she finds value in using the game of golf to network, and bring people together in an edifying atmosphere. Kelly recently took on the role of Director of Sales at Makalei Golf Course, and looks forward to helping people raise funds for charities/foundations by setting up tournaments.
