In Kelly’s Words – Why the KBF? Why Now?

Posted on December 11, 2016 to Blog

  This time of year we all get asked by a lot of organization to give. We ask too, but it’s not usually me (I leave it to Zeke and our awesome fundraisers)! I’m the “Thank You” person! This year is different. It has been an INCREDIBLE year for the KBF and I want to take […]

In Kelly’s Words – How kids react to my wheelchair

Posted on November 13, 2016 to Blog

One of the things I love about kids is that they are unfiltered. They don’t know about being polite or politically correct or not asking certain questions for one reason or another. And in my job as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at Hagan, Rinehart & Connolly Pediatricians in Burlington, VT, I have 1-on-1 interactions with […]

In Kelly’s Words – This one’s all about Dylan!

Posted on October 9, 2016 to Blog

  My daughter Dylan was born more than 5 months ago now. It feels both like we’ve had her forever and like that time has flown by (I can hardly remember the last full night sleep I had). It has been a wonderful and challenging experience. After learning I would still be able to have […]

In Kelly’s Words – What’s so cool about the Kelly Brush Ride, anyway?

Posted on August 29, 2016 to Blog

To make it easy, you can register or donate here 😉 The Kelly Brush Ride is my favorite day of the year. It’s stressful and a lot of work to plan. It’s exhausting and at times frustrating. (I’m really selling it, huh!). But each year at the end of the day I’m riding the biggest high. […]

In Kelly’s Words – We’re Back in VT!

Posted on August 7, 2016 to Blog

When I used to tell people that I lived in Maine, or before that I lived in Boston, people were often surprised I didn’t live in Vermont. While the KBF has always been based in Vermont, I haven’t actually lived there since the summer after college. I lived in Connecticut for 1 year working at […]

In Kelly’s Words – Kelly Turns 30!

Posted on July 10, 2016 to Blog

  On July 9th I turned 30. Yikes! To many people that seems so young – and I guess it is! But so often people use 30 as a milestone, when youth runs out and something is expected of you. In your teens and 20s most birthdays are exciting because you hit some milestone –but […]

Posted on May 8, 2016 to Blog

I’m a mom! It has been 2 weeks since Dylan Mary Davisson came into this world and it has just been great! Zeke and I feel incredibly blessed to have a healthy baby and it has been both fun and stressful figuring out how to take care of her as well as ourselves. For those […]

In Kelly’s Words – Pregnancy Update: Still Here….

Posted on April 20, 2016 to Blog

  So…. what does someone do for 3 weeks in the hospital? I would ask the same question if I knew someone was in the hospital for that amount of time and not really “hurt” or “sick”. The good news is that I have been feeling well and the baby has been doing well – […]
