Kelly started JCTB in 2016 midst panic-attack and has since reached an audience of 10 million with just her take on anxiety. Though mental illness is a large factor in her life, she created JCTB to show all areas of her life. In her free time, Kelly can be found writing (duh), exploring her Chicago hometown, and frequenting a handful of coffee shops. She's an avid reader, music listener, and dog lover. Kelly's writing talents have landed her in a variety of positions, including her current job as a full-time writer at Newsweek, as well as interning at Rolling Stone Magazine and writing about music at Atwood Magazine.
