Mary Kelley graduated from Etowah High School in Attalla after moving here from Texas in 2000. She quickly developed an affinity for Gadsden while working as a clerk at the Gadsden Library and continued to serve in various educational capacities and assist with literary outreach initiatives over the next ten years.
In 2022, Mary earned an Associates degree in Stenography from Gadsden State. Her work in the legal field has allowed her to continue to provide a service to her community by helping them find peace through serious struggles. When she’s not behind a desk recovering information lost to the void of time and space, Mary can be found reading books about the same. She also enjoys baking and spending time with her nieces and nephews.
