Courtney Kelley

Courtney co-hosts Cat Country Mornings and she just loves meeting the fans while out at events with Jake and the crew! Courtney is a native Rhode Islander and although ran away to New York City and Los Angeles for a spell, she found her way back to this fair state! Courtney is a person who has had varied careers and interests over the years. She started out studying theatre and psychology at URI, and originally got her start in radio as a way to help her acting career. At the time she did not realize how much radio would always be a part of her life. After pursing acting and commercial work in NY, Courtney headed back to RI and worked as a life coach, motivational speaker and eventually went back to school to be a counselor. All the while, continued to stay connected with her love for radio by working gigs at various local stations on the weekends.Courtney has always loved being “LIVE AND LOCAL” and connecting with the community so she is especially pleased and honored to be part of Cat Country Mornings! When not on the air, you can usually find her hanging out with her husband and family, walking her dog Roscoe, dancing around the house, trying to do something productive at the gym or attending a really cool concert in the area.
