Hi! I am Kelley Ross and I am a Business, Marketing, Information, & Technology Education Teacher & the Internship Coordinator here in the WACC. I earned my Undergraduate degree at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College and my Master's Degree from Ball State University.
I've been married to my husband, Bob for 25 years this July. We have two daughters, Marissa- 23 years old and Emma- 18 years old (they are the joy of my life!), and the newest love in my life is my Mini Golden Doodle puppy, Lola. I also enjoy spending time with my family & friends - playing cards, trying new restaurants or traveling. I also love to read - especially if I'm on a beach somewhere tropical!
I teach Marketing & Advanced Strategic Marketing (both dual credit) & Work-Based Learning Internship - I love them both!! I do love getting to go and meet business people in all sectors while visiting my interns.
An interesting fact about me: my husband and I met on a blind date - yes, some blind dates do turn out well! I never wanted to be a teacher -EVER! I came from a family of educators and I wasn't going to be one of them. I earned my Bachelors degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Marketing and worked in the business world for a number of years. That teacher calling was always in the back of my head so I eventually listened to it and I went back and earned my teaching degree and my Masters in Business Education - lesson learned 'Never say never!'
Thanks, Kelley, for allowing us to feature you on the blog today. We are very thankful to have you here at the WACC!
