Born and raised in Red Deer Alberta, Kelsey graduated in the summer of 2010 from Mount Royal University with a Bachelors degree in Journalism.

She joined the CTV News team as an intern in July, 2010, and as she expresses it, has had the honour of staying on.

Kelsey  undertook a six month leave in 2013-14 to travel in southeast Asia and contributed to a documentary on the people and experiences she shared while travelling with friends.

Kelsey is a real Rider fan.
