Candidate Name: Kelly Falsetti
Kelly, a Michigan native who was raised in Tampa Bay, and a previous candidate in 2017 and 2018 Kelly has proudly accepted to be a Candidate for Tampa Bay Woman of The Year 2020. The Westchase Charitable Foundation's Mission of Supporting Families with Children going through a serious Medical Crisis is near and dear to Kelly's heart, as the cause is something she unfortunately knows a lot about. Kelly has bravely watched both of her young children struggle with life-threatening medical conditions. After graduating from Florida State University, Kelly enjoyed a good and lucrative career in the Pharmaceutical/Biotech Industry until the birth of her first child who was born with significant medical and special needs. Kelly became a full-time mom committed to helping her daughter climb the proverbial mountain and challenging medical journey ahead. While dedicated to making sure her daughter had the best care,
Kelly's son was born with a major heart condition (requiring numerous heart surgeries). At the time, Kelly found herself facing unbelievable challenges with his medical journey while still in the midst of her daughter’s. Being mom to both of her children are her two biggest blessings. Both of her children are doing well. However, Kelly knows firsthand the literal devastation, disruption of life, and financial/emotional/mental/physical toll that families struggle with while enduring medical battles. Her goal is to raise awareness of the cause and help raise funds to make a difference in the lives of families enduring life altering hardships. She enjoys photography, cooking, music, traveling, and philanthropic work, spending time with family and friends.
