Kelly is the office manager at MDA&A and, generally speaking, the glue that holds everything together. In addition to running the office, she’s the friendly voice you hear on the other end of the line. For almost every appraisal assignment, Kelly is closely involved with research, report production and quality control. She has lived in Pine Plains most of her life. Her husband has been a volunteer firefighter for over 25 years, and their daughters were very involved at school and with Future Farmers of America.
“I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, and helping at various events in my hometown. I have loved every minute of working at L.T. Bookhout, then at DeWan & Schott, and feeling like I am a part of the team. I am happy that Michael is including me in this new venture, and I look forward to continuing to assist any way I can in producing appraisals of the highest quality.”
Kelly went to Berkeley College in White Plains, NY and got her start as a customer service representative in an insurance agency. In 1992, Kelly came to work for L.T. Bookhout, Inc. as a secretary, and she has been in the appraisal business ever since. Her role has evolved into that of an office manager as well as an administrative assistant.
