Kelley started the second generation of ownership at Jack Bradley Agency when she joined her dad, John Barnette, in 1979. She is currently serving as President. Her son, John Herrin, started the third generation here at Jack Bradley Agency in 2009.
She worked through high school and continued through her college years at Piedmont College, where she earned her degrees in Accounting and Business Management. For the past 43 years she has worked in every area of the agency. At the present time, Kelley is focused taking care of the agency’s customers, employees, and companies represented. She believes in personal improvement through learning, and is passionate about motivating others to achieve their own goals.
Kelley also loves being active in the great outdoors and loves camping with her husband, Rodney. In her free time, Kelley likes to consider herself “Pinterest-famous” and tries to find the best way to organize her house and work spaces. Habersham’s small town life is perfect in her eyes—she loves everything from knowing customer names, experiencing very little traffic, and having the beautiful North Georgia Mountains as her playground! In addition to her son, John, Kelley has a daughter, Jessi, that just graduated from the University of Georgia with an Interior Design degree. Kelley loves being a Georgia mom. Her two grandsons and new granddaughter are the cherry on top as they make her life even sweeter.
Kelley enjoys giving back to her community and is involved with the Habersham County Chamber of Commerce, Circle of Hope and the Habersham Rotary Club.
