Kelly St. John is a freelance writer based in Orange County, California. An Emmy-award winning journalist who launched her career in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kelly ditched her reporting gig at an urban newspaper to raise a family & write from home in sunny Southern California.
For the last decade, Kelly has written for publications including the Orange County Register, OC Family, OC Metro, and Patch.com, as well as private clients. In her monthly education column for OC Family, Kelly draws heavily on her experience attending PTA meetings, leading her two daughters' girl scout troops, and all the other trappings of modern parenthood to inform her readers.
Orange County motherhood is a far cry from Kelly's days covering murder trials and breaking news for the San Francisco Chronicle. But hey, that's how life unfolds.
