Born and raised on the westside of Detroit, MI, Kelly J's love for music and the arts started at a young age, but it wasn't until she moved to Las Vegas, NV in 2004 that her desire to pursue it as a career flourished. Following suit to earlier career paths, Kelly J went to UNLV and majored in Nursing right after graduating high school, but also became an intern for 88.1 KCEP. "Working there reminded me of WJLB back home, it reminded me of why I loved radio so much." Immediately following graduation, Kelly J also took up modeling. "The arts in general is just an amazing element. I want to master anything I'm passionate about." At the age of 19, she obtained a position for XRadio.Biz as an on-air personality and staff producer. "It started off as an interview. (laughs) My dance crew and I went up there to be interviewed. The program director loved our energy, and offered me a show right after the interview. It was crazy." From the ground up, she began to learn about the radio world. There, she also began her career as a DJ after researching and interviewing a large number of independent artists. " was all independent music, and after awhile, I found a lot of dope stuff. I fell in love with it, especially Vegas music." Currently, she is a DJ, Model and Host mainly covering the Southern Nevada/Southern California area. "I'm all about growth, evolving, " says Kelly J, who is expanding her experience and talents nationwide.
