WHAT SHE APPLIES FROM HER PREVIOUS CAREER TO HER WORK WITH SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“As a journalist, I love digging deep into research about various topics to uncover unknown variables,” Kelly explains. And that skill has been very helpful as a Suburban Jungle Strategist. “That skill has been a huge help as I dig into different suburbs and neighborhoods!” she says. “I was also a stay at home mom in three different cities for nearly four years, so THAT job gave me amazing insights as far as what families are REALLY looking for when they decide to settle down in a suburb. After all of these moves, I definitely get it!”
WHAT SHE LOVES MOST ABOUT WORKING AT SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“I love being a Suburban Jungle Strategist! It’s hard to pick the one thing I love the most, but if I had to it would be connecting with families and learning more about what they’re looking for in a ‘burb. I’m so honored to be part of this enormous decision during what is, hands down, one of the most important times in their lives and their family’s future. It’s an amazing experience every single time!”
WHAT SHE LOVES MOST ABOUT WORKING WITH SUBURBAN JUNGLE FAMILIES
“No question: the relief in their voice when they know someone — ME! — is looking out for them! It’s the best!”
ABOUT HER FAMILY
“My husband Jorge works in sports broadcasting — we met in 2006 and dated long distance for almost two years before I made the move to Miami. Now it’s us plus our 3-year-old daughter Aria Rose!”
“I worked as a producer in broadcast news at the CBS affiliate in Miami. We got married in 2011 and Aria came in 2014. We enjoy going to sporting events and attending our daughter’s various activities around town. We have lived in three states since we’ve been married….Florida, Connecticut and California. It’s been an interesting—and fun!—ride that’s given me an amazing perspective into the wants and needs of urban-to-suburban families.”
WHERE SHE MOVED FROM
Everywhere—Kelly was raised in L.A., but she and Jorge spent six years together in Miami before heading up to Fairfield County, Connecticut.
WHERE SHE CALLS HOME
WHEN IT ALL HAPPENED
In 2016 they moved cross-country and settled down in L.A.
WHY SHE CHOSE PASADENA
“We love Pasadena because of the proximity to downtown Los Angeles, where my husband’s job is. I love the old, character filled homes, street lights, wide streets and wide sidewalks—as crazy as that sounds!”
WHAT SHE’D TELL CITY FAMILIES CONSIDERING MAKING A MOVE
“Neighborhood block parties and yard sales are AWESOME!”
WHY SHE WORKS FOR SUBURBAN JUNGLE
“It marries my two hobbies, real estate and giving advice!”
