First time I met Kelly, I was amazed at how she was so well connected – globally and galactically! We were on a USAID FAM Trip and arriving into Istanbul for one night. Within 60 seconds, she made a call and arranged for a limo luxury van to pick us up, and reservations at one of the best seafood restaurants near the Bosphorus Strait. To top it off, the chaffeur gave us a night tour of the Istanbul landmarks. None of this would have happened without her network, diplomacy and good humor.

Kelly is particularly noted for her incredible knowledge of the Greek Isles. “I stepped off the boat on the Greek island of Hydra in July 1978 and my life has never been the same. I was on a 55 day tour of Europe during college, we visited 14 different countries and half way through we stopped in Greece. The island of Hydra was unlike any I had never seen! A tiny island with no cars, only donkeys and your feet to get you around, no neon signs and old Greek fisherman bringing in their daily catch. I returned to Hydra every summer for the next seven years and worked as a tour guide on the island. Greece has become my passion and Hydra my second home, I return there almost every year at least once. I know the best guides, the best hotels, restaurants and off-the-beaten-path places that many tourists don’t get to see.
