After graduating from college with biology and math majors, she spent the next few years teaching high school biology in rural Mississippi. Since joining the monarch lab, Kelly has been extensively involved in both research and outreach. Currently, Kelly is looking at the eastern North American monarch population and how their migration might be affected by climate change and non-native milkweed. In addition to research, she has previously given talks at the MN House of Representatives, the MN Zoo, and led workshops on monarch conservation throughout the country.
