About Kelley

I’m a mother to a teenage daughter who has been analyzing Covid data since May 2020. My interest originally was Georgia data so that I could better understand and communicate to others about our local metrics. However, I was also passionate that we should not keep children out of school past Spring 2020, which already felt like too long, so I began reviewing and sharing data about school reopening in Europe and elsewhere, as well as data about the low risk to children, and the need to return things back to normal for children without masks, distancing, and other restrictions.

While I don’t have a background in epidemiology, I do have a double major from Emory University in Psychology and Educational Studies. I also am a bit of a data geek, and career in information technology. I worked in the information technology field for over 20 years, in roles such as Technical Writer, Research & Database Manager, and IT Compliance Manager. Throughout much of my career, I’ve been known as someone who could quickly research and digest new information and then communicate that data to others, which has been much of what I’ve done with Covid data.

I created this site to share the Georgia Covid data with others and continue to do so on a weekly basis. I have also added data and analysis on the impact of Covid in the children and teens, specifically focused on pediatric mortality, which has often been misrepresented online and in the media.
