Kelly Reci is inspired by her role as a mother and a wife. She became an advocate for Autism after the birth of her now adult son, Devon, who is Autistic. She loves to cook and bake, which results in trying new recipes on her friends and family. New Jersey natives, Kelly, husband Ronnie, son Devon, daughter Amanda, and their Six dogs and Two cats have since relocated to South Carolina where she is also a caregiver for her young niece and nephew. She regularly shares tips and information on a broad range of topics on her blog, including recipes, fashion, beauty, travel, health, and autism. In this role, she is highly active in social media by Facebook posting and Tweeting the blog posts she writes on a daily basis.
