Kelsey Buford - Top 15

1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
My incredible daughters were both born premature and with developmental delays. Consequently, when I hear “be the change” I feel it is my responsibility to step up and be the voice for my children and an advocate to assist the many families that share in a similar situation.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
I would describe him as a football player turned devoted father. He is a hardworking lineman who puts others' needs ahead of his own. He is a family man; he makes sure that I am taken care of as well as the needs of our little girls; in fact, I always get a heads up before they cut the power off. Perks of being married to a Lineman!

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
When I was in Elementary school in Massachusetts, I would walk to my mom’s classroom 0.3 miles up the hill after school. On rainy, snowy, or cold days my grandfather would surprise me with a warm car ride up the hill. Now that he is gone it is the small moments and memories that I cherish the most. This is a reminder that the little things in life make the biggest difference.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
I participated in many different sports and that led to injuries throughout my high school years. I could easily be described as “Accident Prone.” During spirit week on one of the days I wore a white shirt with caution tape on the front and accident prone on the back because I was on crutches with a boot for my broken ankle.

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
I would buy him an incredible amount of land so we could build our dream home together. I want him to be able to have a private place on the weekends that he could go fishing and teach our girls about archery. This would be something we could hand down to our children and their families.
