We believe in making your child's dreams come true by bringing the magic of a real princess or superhero to your home

Kelly - Owner

I am mother of two princess-crazy girls and a superhero-fanatic boy. 

My professional background is in event planning, promotional marketing, branding, and management have been paramount in my confidence to pursue the dream of being a business owner. My life experience of being a woman and a mother have given me the insight and desire to cater to and entertain children.

How did I get into a children’s entertainment company? I had to think about what talents and interests I have (event planning, love of children, make-up and costumes, entrepreneurial spirit, management experience, and a love of all things Disney).

Doing this business seems so obvious now but it took me several years to discover it.  It is the perfect business based on my talents and interests.


I am a mother of an adventurous little boy! I have years of professional experience caring for children as a nanny. During my college years I studied the arts including sculpture and photography. I enjoy being able to express my creativity In many variations as a performer and face painter for PAA. It has been truly rewarding helping build memories that will last a lifetime.


I have been with PAA since the start! At 15 years old, I've waited tables at the Park Cafe in my small town, babysat for local families, volunteered at the local nursing home, and nannied for some amazing children. I will be starting my Junior year of high school fall of 2017. Ever since I was a little girl playing with baby dolls, I knew working with children would be my passion. This is the best “job” ever.


I am a fun, silly, hardworking, creative and loving father. My kids mean the world to me. I am happy to share those same qualities with every event that I do with PAA. Working closely with these lovely “princesses”, isn't too bad of a perk either! Breanna is my wife, whom also works with PAA. Being able to work with her and see how she lights up others lives the way she does mine, makes me love her even more. I love you Breanna Marie.


I have been a part of PAA since the beginning! I love children and have some of my own. I am a country girl at heart, but can be best described as a posh tomboy. Being a part of PAA inspires me, the events we do at hospitals are closest to my heart. It's a great honor to see the sparkle of magic in children’s eyes and know that we helped make their imaginations come to life.
