Kellie grew up as the only gearhead in her family. She began collecting and working on cars at the age of 14 when she bought her first car – a 1968 Firebird with a 428. Once she got gasoline in her veins she hasn’t been able to get it out (or even wanted to). From an engineering and Industrial background, she has been immersed in the automotive aftermarket since 2001, serving as an elected member of several Select Committees through the years and winning SBN Woman of the Year at the SEMA Show in 2010. Always keeping busy, she Crew Chiefed the SEMA Mustang Build Powered by Women, and won the Comp Cams Engine Builder Duel both in 2012.
In Kellie’s spare time, she works on restoring her 1865 farmhouse & barn, or her cars.
