Kelly Flannery was born and raised in South Tampa and studied at Florida State University where she earned her B.S. in political science. After graduating, she wanted to go somewhere new and different. With that, she moved to Chicago and worked at the iconic Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in catering and convention services. After a few years, she realized Tampa was where her heart and soul was, so she moved back down south seeking to do something more specific to the South Tampa community.
