Kellsie is currently living in Decatur, Texas with her husband, two horses, two dogs and cat.  She has always enjoyed teaching and helping others.  This was one of the main reasons Kellsie loved being a rodeo queen.  Educating about rodeo and helping other girls achieve their dreams to create the next generation of the rodeo family is a goal and mission for her.  This love of teaching also guided her into the education field.  Kellsie is a 3rd grade math and science teacher.  She has a deep understanding of how people learn and best practices for studying and recalling information.
