Keely earned her undergraduate degree at Purdue University and her Master’s Degree from UCLA, both in Microbiology. She became interested in education as a high school student, enjoying the puzzle of helping siblings and friends find a way to grasp challenging material. She has since taught students as a peer tutor at Purdue, as a college instructor at UCLA, and as a professional tutor since graduating, and as a public school science teacher. She missed the one-on-one dynamic of tutoring when teaching a full classroom, and feels very fortunate to have found a better fit at Fusion.
When not geeking out about science and math with her students, Keely enjoys spending time outdoors, baking, and making art.
