Minister to Children

Kelsey grew up in Huntsville and began college at SHSU before transferring to the University of North Texas to complete a degree in Interior Design.

After a stint at University Heights as the Preschool Ministry Associate, Kelsey moved to Chicago to serve as a Children and Youth Minister of New City Church. She holds a Masters Degree in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University.

She returned to the staff of University Heights as Minister to Children in 2016.
