Deb Kelly joined Rotary to serve others and give back.  She admired Rotary from afar, but when she came to meetings, she saw that we are PEOPLE OF ACTION and wanted to be part of it!  

After being raised in MN, she moved to Fort Collins in 1987.  She was a single mom and raised her daughter, Amber, here. Amber is a graduate of Poudre School District, C.S.U and the U. of Michigan (degree in Social Work.)   Amber, her husband and two sons (10 and 7) live here.  Deb feels blessed to be in a community that is so family oriented.  

Deb also has a dad, stepmom, sister and brother in Alaska whom she usually visits annually.  

She is Vice President/Manager of Independent Financial Bank and has been a banker for 40 years!  Her resume includes a short stint as an EMT in Hawaii and Loveland. 

She loves to travel and saw the birth of a giraffe on a safari to Kenya and Tanzania. She loves the outdoors – hiking in the mountains or getting to the ocean.   And she tries to get some place warm every winter.   She enjoys movies and almost all major sports.
