She has also worked in a HIV/AIDS Hospice, sexual trauma unit, as a hospice chaplain, as an HIV/AIDS counselor and HIV tester.

Kellie has been involved with writing throughout most of her life. In 2007 she took a position as a commissioned ghostwriter and has been doing that as a side job ever since. She has been published in academic journals, trade journals, short story anthologies, and magazines. She wrote a monthly column about GLBT spirituality for GF (Gay Friendly) Magazine for five years. Her book, Two Miles From Peace, was self-published in 2010. Kellie is currently the staff writer and editor for Heron's Wing Press, a small press publishing house in Williamsburg.
