What you may not know about Kiely…
She lives with her husband JP and three children. While she’s open to any challenge at work, she steers clear from two things at home:

  • She “cannot stand to debone a chicken,” so she routinely defers this task to JP.
  • She’s also not a fan of dealing with spiders and snakes, so she taps JP for these as well.

Two other interesting “bird-related” tidbits? On weekends, Kiely loves to shoot clay pigeons with her shotgun, and she “owns” a hawk and falcon via her husband who is a licensed falconer.
