As a new member of the Television Academy, Kelsey‘s lifelong passion for the cinematic arts can be felt throughout her colorful body of work. Whether she is writing, directing, producing, editing or letting her inner-self shine in front of the camera, Kelsey has experience excelling in all of these fields.

While receiving her undergraduate degree at USC, studying Broadcast Journalism, Cinematic Arts and Business and her graduate degree from Pepperdine University, Kelsey interned at local news stations, acted in many student films and served as a reporter at the Annenburg Television News.

Establishing McYoLo Entertainment in 2018, Kelsey has since created a 35 minute documentary called Golfingly Yours and 3 mini-series: Dating Diaries, The Accessorized Home and Kindness with Kelsey. She has had the pleasure of working with the best from crews at networks like HGTV and Lando Entertainment and enjoyed the thrill of earning a 2020 Emmy nomination for her work on HGTV’s hit show, “A Very Brady Renovation”. She continues to create witty and original content, producing a new script now. Always wearing her heart on her sleeve, Kelsey applies her insightful and sensitive intuition and unique, original humor to her writing.
