Prior to joining Verrill Dana, Kelly worked in the Boston office of Locke Lord where she established a solid foundation in trademark law.

Kelly received her law degree from the University of New Hampshire School of Law (formerly the Franklin Pierce Law Center). While in law school, Kelly was a Senior Editor for the University of New Hampshire Law Review.
