My name is Kelsey and I’m an open amateur boxer in Georgia. I love boxing, writing and writing about boxing.
I’ve been boxing for five years. Although I took a fake fitness kickboxing class in high school, I had no actual boxing experience when I began training in early January 2012. I started boxing for fitness, but discovered that I definitely wanted to compete. Without a doubt, this has changed my life in a big way and there is no going back! I started this blog when I signed up for my first fight, as a way of recording my thoughts and progress.
When I’m not boxing… I’m eating or sleeping. (Just kidding! Or am I…?) First, I was a teacher by trade. When I dove into boxing, I left teaching to work at my previous gym home. At the beginning of 2017, five years into my boxing journey, I moved to a new gym and chose a new trainer. My boxing and work are separate now, and I’m a cheerful Customer Service Staff associate at Publix. On the side, I babysit because I can’t get enough of my little folks. Because I’m really four years old at heart.
