Kelly grew up in a family of golfers, and found a passion for the game through cultivating a sales career in her early 20's. After spending 13 years selling international logistics/transportation services, she decided to take her sales experience to the golf industry on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. 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.
