Kelly Sturm has been a native to St. Louis her whole life. She attended high school at Parkway South, and college at Webster University where she received a B.S. degree in Biology, which she parlayed into an eight-year stint at Pfizer doing pharmaceutical research. When the door closed at Pfizer, another one opened at Patch. She discovered she had a true passion in talking with people, researching stories and taking photos as a community journalist.
Kelly and her husband, Brian, have two children, Jacob, 7, and Addison, 3. When Kelly is not roaming the Fenton and High Ridge communities, you will find her spending time with her husband and children hiking, going to the movies and playing sports. If they are not at a soccer or baseball game, dance class or taekwondo, Kelly and Brian often are on their backyard deck sharing a bottle of wine and barbecue with friends.
