Throughout her successful 30-year career in marketing and communications, Kelley has been a high-impact relationship-builder. A graduate of Denison University with a BA degree in International Relations, her work experiences began in Washington, D.C. where professional roles included working with the White House press corps and serving as the press officer for the United States Peace Corps. After marrying her husband Tim, she returned to her hometown of Chicago where they lived for ten years. There she worked as a publicist for Warner Bros. and worked at The Kellogg School at Northwestern University before starting her own public relations and marketing firm. Her sterling background is proving an ideal foundation for residential sales where her communications, networking and strong client-based focus are utilized every day as a Realtor.

Kelley is an engaged member across a diverse range of aspects of life in the Somerset Hills. Married with five children, Kelley has a passion for education and is a proponent of alternative experiences and learning environments, particularly experiential learning. Kelley and her husband moved their family to Bernardsville in 2002, where for two decades her children have flourished in the local public and private schools. Her intimate knowledge of the various schools in the area is another asset she brings to her clients.

As a problem-solver who thinks creatively and strategically, Kelley is known for her joy of connecting people and igniting the spark of new ideas. Kelley volunteers at her children's schools and throughout the community; including her involvement with the Hearts for Honduras organization and board member of Focus New Jersey.

She was drawn to Turpin based on the company's reputation for professionalism and strong feeling of community. “Turpin is a customer-focused company that cares about the people they serve, and I am happy to be part of the exceptional sales team in Bernardsville where I can make a positive difference in my clients' lives,” Kelley said. With her gift for helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals, Kelley strives to make every transaction as seamless as possible.
