Kelly Collis is a native Washingtonian and has been working in the DC area for over 20 years. In 2011, she decided to take a turn in her career after working over a decade in public relations and marketing, when one of her best friends, Tommy McFly, told her about an opportunity to host a morning radio show. She and Tommy hosted a morning show on terrestrial radio, 94.7 Fresh FM in Washington, DC for 8 years. Prior to her radio job, she founded CityShopGirl a subscription email publication delivering updates on lifestyle in the D.C. area and was nominated for one of the best blogs by the Washingtonian Magazine.
