Raised by a single mom, Kelly and his sister moved frequently as a child. His mother struggled to move into a great school district, ensuring the opportunity for Kelly and his sister to receive a quality education. His mom’s sacrifice and dedication to her kids helped shape Kelly and make him the man he is today.

After graduating from high school, Kelly joined the United States Marine Corps in 1993 While on alpha increment air alert, his unit deployed to Cuba in 1995, his unit was also deployed to Okinawa, Japan, and South Korea. In 1996 he served on the LST USS La Moure County (LST-1194) during UNITAS 96. This was a South American tour and relations mission. Seeing every Country in South and Central America broadened Kelly’s knowledge base and interpersonal skills.

After his honorable discharge from the Marines Kelly began his transition back into civilian life as a bartender. Developing his career skills he moved up to managing several restaurants in the Midwest and East Coast. Kelly relocated to Chandler, AZ in 2003. He continued to grow in the restaurant business and today is an owner of two Melting Pot Franchises and his own concept, BKD’s Backyard Joint in Chandler.

Kelly is a dedicated community leader, and is the founder and chairman for the Maricopa County Republican Veterans Committee. His partnership with community groups and fundraising through his businesses has helped Kelly to identify the needs of our community and where needed feed that information to both the state legislators as well as the federal Senators and Congress people for action.
