As busy corporate executives, Kelly and her husband Steve were challenged everyday to prepare healthful lunches for their 2 small boys to enjoy at school. Introducing exciting, healthful foods to their children young was an important family initiative, and options at school were either non existent or not appealing to this health-focused family. When she discovered WT Café Kelly knew she would be a customer and quickly realized that she wanted to take on the adventure of providing delicious, convenient and healthful lunch options to other families. Kelly launched WT Café of Tampa in 2011. In her free time Kelly loves to run, enjoying adventure races from time to time (cheered on enthusiastically by her 2 boys and husband), travel, and spend time with family and friends. Kelly is also committed to showing her two boys around the kitchen and sharing with them her love of preparing delicious food with good ingredients so they can do the same with their families someday. Professionally, Kelly has 15 years of corporate finance experience. She graduated from Syracuse University with a B.S. in Political Science and continued on at Syracuse to earn her Master’s in Public Administration and Master’s in Economic Geography. Prior to opening WT Café of Tampa, Kelly worked as a Sector Head and Senior Director for Fitch Ratings where she managed public finance credit ratings for the southeast quadrant of the U.S.
