Kelsie hails from Long Beach, California (proud hometown of Snoop Dogg), but relocated to Colorado in 2007 to escape the perfect-but-oh-so-predictably-boring weather, brutal gang violence way too close for comfort, and a state economy far from golden. Along the winding road of academia, she has fallen in love with poetry, the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald, and a man named Robbie, her fiancé and quite possibly the most interesting man in the world (not the guy from the Dos Equis commercial). And thankfully, she was finally able to escape the unspeakable horrors of working in retail by becoming an intern at the Writing Center. When not pondering how Sappho's poetry reflects gender norms in ancient Greece or the role of science and technology in 19th century British literature, she enjoys hobbies that require absolutely no brain activity, particularly watching television. And she is strongly convicted in her belief that House, Arrested Development, and Pushing Daisies are the best television series that have ever existed. She also enjoys snooty Oscar flicks (particularly Frost/Nixon, An Education, and Mrs. Brown) that are much too boring for non-eccentric people. Her (arguably) less boring interests include the Spanish language, numismatics, acoustic music, current events, and the refined art of Tetris.
