Full name: Christina Kelly
Hometown: Dunmore, PA
Favorite Weekender feature: Anything that will tell me unique events that are happening in our area. I love to get out and see what Scranton and Wilkes-Barre have to offer!
Favorite bar/restaurant: Ipanema Grille in Scranton.
What are you passionate about? I am so passionate about health and fitness. I love working out and do it as much as I can between being enrolled in a physician assistant program and balancing time with my family.
Who do you admire? I admire my mother. She is the strongest woman I know. She manages caring for her family, working, and trying as hard as she can to be sure that everyone is satisfied. I love her so much; words can’t describe.
What’s something most people don’t know about you? I can double as a part-time construction worker. I have moved over 13 times and have done masonry work, mastered the paint roller, and carried boxes for hours. I usually try to be the ‘supervisor’ and just show up for lunch, but I can do the work also.
Are you a dog person or a cat person? Dog. I have two. A Doberman and an Olde English Bulldogge.
If you had to pick, would you want someone with beauty or brains? Definitely brains. It is so much more important to have a good head on your shoulders.
My last meal would be… Ipanema Grille! The rodizio is to die for.
My theme song would be… ‘Girl on Fire’ by Alicia Keys.
My best concert was… Nothing beats the Toby Keith concert at Montage Mountain to wrap up every summer.
For a good time I… love to go for road trips. Even if it is just a drive to the Circle Drive-In on Sunday mornings for the flea market with my father, I love spontaneity.
