Kellie Phelan

After moving from New England in 2012, Kellie found Seattle to be the perfect home for her passions - community, environment, and modern-day homesteading. Kellie is an active member of the West Seattle Timebank, sharing skills with neighbors and volunteering with her therapy dog Clover. She has a backyard garden full of veggies, and teaches gardening, canning, and knitting classes with the Seattle Farm School.

Kellie is the Secretary and a founding board member of the Urban Homestead Foundation, which is creating a community gathering and educational space based on urban agriculture in West Seattle. Her background is in environmental consulting and operations management.

On the weekends, you can find Kellie exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband in their '91 Vanagon, finding water to swim in during the summer and hills to telemark ski on in the winter.
