As a co-owner, Kelly makes up one-third of the Block Island Organics team. Before joining the company, she had a standard beauty routine including skincare elements like moisturizer and makeup. Since then she extensively investigated the elements of skincare and learned that the sun is the primary source of skin damage and aging. With this in mind, sun care is now one of her passions. She loves spreading the word, especially to other women, about the importance of sunscreen use everyday. It's the one and only beauty tip she lives by to prevent skin aging and skin cancer. She also believes strongly in supporting other women entrepreneurs. In addition to Block Island Organics, Kelly received her MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management and BA from New York University. Kelly also happens to be married to one of the other co-owners, Will von Bernuth, as Block Island Organics is a family company.
