Kelly Austing

Kelly is a 36-year-old single mother of twin 4-year-old boys, Mikey and Tommy. In 2001 Kelly landed her dream job as an event producer at In Style, a leading fashion and lifestyle magazine. She served as executive producer for events including the In Style / Warner Bros. Golden Globe Award Dinner and After Party, Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party, In Style's Annual Oscar Viewing Party, In Style Summer Soiree and a variety of other high-caliber entertainment industry and film festival events. Where the glitz of Hollywood was once the inner drive in planning an event, Kelly now truly enjoys working on the many charity events that In Style lends its name and resources to throughout the year. In her spare time, she hikes the hills and beaches of California and is active in two charities: Healthy Child Healthy World and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA). Above all, family is a priority for Kelly. She enjoys attending her boys' sports activities and always leaves time for the family to chase the ducks and squirrels at one of the local parks or beaches.
