New England Native Kelly O'Brien is the Northern New York Bureau Reporter for WCAX.

Kelly graduated in the class of 2011 from Salem High School in New Hampshire. Her next stop was the Green Mountain State where she received her BA in Electronic Journalism Arts from Lyndon State College.

Following graduation, Kelly headed down south to WFMY News 2 in Greensboro, North Carolina, as a photojournalist. There, she covered every shift possible and ended her time there working in the "2 Wants to Know" Investigative/Consumer office.

Kelly is very excited to join the WCAX team and eager to tell YOUR stories! New York is the fifth state she's called home, others include Vermont, North Carolina, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

When she's not at work, you can find Kelly hiking up the mountains or snowboarding down them in the winter. You also will notice a lot of pictures (A LOT) of her cat, LuLu, on social media or anywhere I am allowed post them.
