Clay is a Captain with the Frisco Fire Department and earned the Paramedic of the Year award. Combined with their real life experience as parents, Meredith’s educational background, and Clay’s no-nonsense business mind, they’ve created The Blue Elephant Curriculum.

Ms. Kelly / Director


My name is Ms. Kelly & I am so excited to be TBE’s Director! I knew from a young age that early childhood education was my passion. I moved from Alaska in 2008 and have called Texas my home ever since. I’m happily married, have three amazing daughters, and one dog at home. When we aren't busy with school and work, we like to spend time outdoors camping, dirt-biking, or just hanging out together. I have been with The Blue Elephant since the fall of 2013 and immediately felt like family. I am overjoyed to be a part of this adventure and can’t wait to see how much we grow this year!
