Born in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Kelly moved around the nation before settling down. After graduating Norman High in 1994, he joined the U.S. Navy. Kelly served for three years, earning the rank of Boatswain’s Mate third class while stationed in Norfolk Virginia. After released from active duty, he stayed along the east coast, serving two years on reserve status.
Kelly met Selena in high school and dated throughout the years. They spent time in the Del Mar area and were married in 2000. Later, they returned to Norman to be near family.
Kelly began his garage door career at Norman Garage Doors as a hardware boy. Through his hard work and dedication, he was promoted to Manager of Americraft Doors (a subsidy of the company) and later General Manager of Norman Garage Doors.
In 2011, Kelly left the company and started Top Quality Doors with two friends, Brian Hendersen and JD Williams. The business experienced skyrocketing growth in the following five years and in 2016, Kelly and Selena were able to purchase shares of the company – obtaining sole ownership.
Kelly continually strives to improve his knowledge through industry training and certifications. He has maintained a status of factory training and certification as an installer with V-Mag Gate Operators and Hy-Security Hydraulic and Crash Gate Operators. Additionally, he has studied and tested with the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation, earning his Automated Gate Operator Installer certification.
Today, Kelly and Selena remain in Norman with their dogs and cats. In his free time, Kelly enjoys traveling in the RV, fishing and restoring C-10 trucks.
