Staff Spotlight, Trisha Kelly
Park Ranger, Trisha Kelly
Meet Trisha Kelly, park ranger at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park! Trisha started out volunteering and transitioned to a part-time position in the ranger station, eventually achieving her ultimate goal of becoming a park ranger.
Trisha has been working for the Florida Park Service since 2014 and her enthusiasm for the great outdoors shines through on a daily basis. She grew up in the eastern United States and developed a love for the outdoors during her younger years when she frequently visited and hiked the Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains.
Trisha has been working with the public all her career. So her love of interacting with the public and the love of the outdoors naturally brought her to the Florida Park Service.
She enjoys interacting with the many beach-goers and surfers at Fort Pierce Inlet, and on any given day you might find her doing trail maintenance, patrolling the beach or greeting visitors in the ranger station. When the opportunity arises, she also enjoys working with wildlife at the park and she is looking forward to conducting sea turtle nest surveys in the upcoming nesting season.
We hope that you will visit Fort Pierce Inlet State Park soon and allow Trisha and the rest of our experienced team to share our story with you.
