Kelly has been one of our District Engineers since 2010, providing technical support to landowners, farmers, dairies, and local municipalities. He brings 27 years of experience with the US Forest Service in duty stations from California to Georgia working in all aspects of civil engineering supporting Timber Sale and Capital Improvement Programs primarily building and maintaining roads, trails, and bridges and 5 years as a consultant for my own engineering company providing technical assistance to Conservation Districts in Oregon. He has a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from the Georgia Institue of Technology.  As a military brat, Kelly moved all over Europe and the US.  His Dad's family was part of the migration west on the Oregon Trail and settled in Eastern Oregon in the 1870's.  He considers Athena, Oregon his hometown.

What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?

Having lived in each corner of the US I can say that each region holds a special place in my heart.  I'm a bit partial to drier climates, but you can't beat this part of the country for the variety of outdoor and cultural experiences within an hour of home.  

Why do you work here (at the District)?

I really enjoy working with people who are close to the ground.  I get a lot of satisfaction helping people solve problems that lead to improved operations and efficiency.  

Bonus fact!

  • My favorite movie is "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".
