Kellie grew up the youngest of three siblings, with two older brothers. When they picked on her, the wilderness was an escape into a world that provided peace. Her father began teaching her to butcher animals at age 3.

Following experience in the law enforcement and as a rock miner, Kellie is now a guide for glacier and whale watching adventures. She describes herself as the epitome of a survivalist. She once survived in the Everglades for a week by herself and even harpooned an alligator. An extremely tough woman, she has had several near-death experiences, including getting stung by a swarm of bees as a child.
