She’s the president of Penn State’s chapter of PRSSA, the Director of Business Affairs for Happy Valley Communications, the president of charity:water Penn State, and a marketing intern for the Penn State Student Newspaper Readership Program. We sat down with Kelly to talk about several important issues….like creamery ice cream and iPhone apps.
1.What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time? Do you have any free time?
Sleep and food are always top priority in my free time! If I don’t have free time, I try to make it. It’s always important to find a few minutes here and there to relax and enjoy life! 
2. Favorite iPhone app?
Instagram. No question. It’s amazing how good things can look with a little filter. We live in a beautiful world and Instagram enhances it just a little more!
3. Six months left to live…what would you do with your time?
Change the world and see the world with the people I love.
4. You’re having a terrible day…what’s your go-to song on your iPod? What about a great day?
Andrew McMahon, lead singer of Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin provides my music for good and bad days. Konstantine, There, There Katie and Hammers and Strings fit no matter what day or mood.
5. How many pairs of Toms do you own? Be honest.
Four pairs of TOMS shoes, a TOMS t-shirt, a TOMS sweatshirt and a pair of TOMS sunglasses.
6. You lived in NYC this summer…what’s the craziest thing you saw?
NYC produces some pretty crazy things! The craziest? A man dressed as a pin cushion, a 40-year-old guy sitting in the Washington Square Park fountain with two doll heads… oh, and casually seeing Emily from Pretty Little Liars at a random Starbucks!
7. Biggest pet peeve?
When you hold the door for people and they walk through without touching it or acknowledging you were kind enough for to hold it for them!
8. Favorite creamery ice cream flavor?
Bittersweet Mint! I’ve lived in State College my entire life and I don’t think I’ve ever ordered any other flavor. 
9. Spontaneity or stability?
A balance of both! A good level of stability open up the opportunity for spontaneity.
