What is Kellie M. Warren’s story?
Growing up in Ohio, Kellie was part of an amazing, encouraging family that extended to aunts, uncles, and lots of cousins. Her maternal grandmother instilled in Kellie her ideals of faith, family and values, which included a major emphasis on education. Her parents and close-knit circle of extended family taught her selflessness, togetherness, and sharing. Through that process, Kellie learned the intrinsic rewards of serving others. Since her youngest years, she always aspired to be a dancer/actress; but the starving artist concept wore very thin and would never support her passion for fabulous shoes. During her adolescent years, she was involved in community groups where she held many leadership roles. At that time in her life, Kellie learned the importance of providing a voice to youth during one of the most misunderstood times of their development. Once Kellie finished with school, she naturally gravitated toward a career serving at-risk youth and other vulnerable populations.
Kellie says, “I absolutely love the mission of Florence Crittenton. The work I do here resonates with my personal philosophy and core values. I feel very purpose-driven and, surprisingly to most, the girls do more for me than I can ever do for them.”
