Kelly BrabecCommunity Advisory Board Member
Kelly grew up in Nebraska among farms and fertile soils.
Outfitted with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Film Studies from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, in conjunction with the University of Westminster in London, England, she moved to Nome, Alaska to work for a community-driven, nonprofit radio station. There she became versed in local radio, holding a range of jobs from Program and Music Director to producer and on-air host, and relished in the beauty and resilience of the Alaska Native culture. Kelly also has experience in youth corrections, residential activities development, volunteer coordination, and yoga instruction. More than 20 years have passed and she’s still in awe of the connection and companionship only local radio provides. No matter where she roams, she earnestly seeks it out. When not working, Kelly and her spouse happily spend their time traveling, appreciating the true wild, and creating artsy things.
