“My experiences at North Central uncovered my interests in wellness and recreation. I realized I want to get people active, and help them develop a lifestyle of fitness and wellness, and have fun doing it.”

Undecided on a major when she arrived at North Central, Kelly says, “My strategy was to get the most well-rounded experience I could in the areas of health and activity.” She soon chose minors in wellness, physical education and coaching to complement a major in sport management. “My wellness minor gave me a deeper understanding of why we’re supposed to exercise and eat right and how to do it right. It also led to an interest in working with childhood obesity programs.”

Kelly says her focus on wellness led her to a graduate program in recreation administration at Illinois State University. “I’ll be working as a graduate assistant in special events and competitive programs and learning about everything related to recreation and wellness.”
