Kelsey Althouse

I’m originally from the beautiful town of Sun Valley, Idaho. After 18 years of long winters in a small community, I was seeking sunshine and the opportunity to make a bigger impact. I moved to Arizona for college and after soaking up the desert sun for 14 years, I moved to Seattle, Washington 2019. I am fortunate to work remotely with our team in Arizona while living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband, Matt.

Growing up in the mountains gave me an appreciation and love for the outdoors, so whenever we’re able, Matt and I love to hike, camp, fish, boat, and visit the shore. We also enjoy traveling every chance we get. I studied abroad in Spain which ignited a lifelong passion for exploring the world. While we enjoy traveling the globe, I also cherish our time spent in my hometown with my family. I love to entertain and cook – anything that brings my loved ones together.

I am passionate about building and staying connected within my community. I’m an active member of the Junior League of Seattle, a non-profit organization that empowers women to lead and give back in their communities.
