Kelly has been guiding on rivers out west for over ten years. She dreamed of working as a river guide in Grand Canyon most of her life before she ended up at Canyon Explorations in 2003. Her love for Grand Canyon and desert rivers can be seen through her paintings and readings on the river. Kelly loves hiking and running big rapids in the paddle boat. She returns each year to the Canyon because of the people she meets along the way and the enjoyment she gets out of watching them experience the magic of the Canyon. In the winter, you’ll find Kelly working on her art projects in Tucson, guiding on the Salt and Verde rivers in Arizona, and running marathons.
