As Chief Marketing Officer, Kelea coordinates operations across ABoR and Unlock MLS, pushing professionalism, innovation, and agility across all facets of our work. She ensures that every aspect of our members’ experience propels their business and well-being through ABoR’s programs, benefits, and services. Having owned her own real estate brokerage and through her past experience working with home builders and real estate education providers, Kelea has a wealth of industry knowledge and is passionate about moving real estate associations forward. Her bold ideas and consistent drive have earned Kelea the nickname “dream catcher” among her staff.

Kelea cares deeply about her community and programs that help young adults realize their dreams and build thriving careers. In partnership with Austin ISD and Austin Community College, she co-created a first-of-its-kind pilot program for Akins ISD in 2019 that allows high school students to graduate with an Associates’ Degree and their real estate license. Kelea currently serves on the Board of Directors for Creative Action, on the Austin Chamber’s District-to-College Achievement Plan Executive Committee, as a mentor for the Austin Women’s Alliance, and as Chair of the Texas Real Estate Commission’s Education Committee. Previously, Kelea has served on the Austin Chamber of Commerce’s Business Awards Nomination Committee, and the National Association of REALTORS®’ Professional Development and REALTOR® Certified Executive (RCE) Committees. Kelea graduated from Florida State University with a B.S in Mass Media Communications and International Affairs, holds RCE and C2EX designations, and is a proud graduate of the Texas Real Estate Leadership Program and Leadership Austin. 

When she’s not working, you can find Kelea in South Austin, tending to her garden or sitting out on the patio while her two babies run across the yard. She and her husband, Jacob, keep their children happy with golf cart rides at sunset before bed.
