Hi! I’m Kelly and am so excited to get to know each other! I believe that telling your story can inspire, initiate friendships, and has the power to heal. By sharing my story, I truly hope that you feel like a part of this community and get to know the virtues of Kelly Jean Snacks.
My experience with nutrition and enjoying great food started while growing up on a ranch in rural South Dakota where we had vegetables fresh from the garden and raised our own cattle. It wasn’t until I was faced with a life-changing health condition at 19 years old that I decided to take my health into my own hands and heal with nutrition. It is my healing journey that has ignited a passion for a healthy lifestyle and to create products that help simplify nutrition so that we spend less time in the kitchen and more living life to the fullest. Kelly Jean Snacks is just that- made in my kitchen as a simple ingredient snack that was indulgent, yet still nutritious, but also fuel any adventure! This product was our solution for a quick snack whether we were in the mountains going snowmobiling or looking for the satisfying snack before bedtime while not compromising our priority on nutrition. In 2019, after sharing our snack with friends and family who continuously crave this snack, we decided to share this snack solution with you!
My pursuit for helping others has only deepened as time goes on. James and I have both experienced our own health battles, the loss of loved ones from stomach cancer, as well as other friends and family that are facing their own health journeys. Learning about the healing power of not only nutrition, but of a supportive community, has proved itself time and time again through all seasons of my life; whether it was healing from ulcerative colitis, becoming a mom, and now in pursuit of my physical and mental wellness. I am continuously learning and defying the limiting beliefs I have told myself who I am. The pursuit of becoming the best version of myself is sparked by the fact that I can’t take care of others to the best of my ability if I don’t feel well.
I currently live in Bozeman, Montana with my husband James and two kids, Liam and Avanah. If my husband would let me, I would have a zoo; so for now we have 2 dogs, Sage and Bear, and a cat, Ginger. My background is in medical science and am a true nerd at heart. We are an adventurous family and love new experiences. I enjoy going on hikes, flying with James in his airplane, traveling, anything to do with snow (winter is my favorite season!), and love ending the night with a movie or a book surrounded by my family.
Kelly Jean Snacks was created out of our passion for health, amazing flavor, and making life an adventure! Come with us in this journey as we share our love for wholesome food and why for us being healthy means living life to the fullest! We can’t wait to get to know you more and see how our snack will fit into your lifestyle!
