His joy in business comes from the amazing people he works with and he makes it his mission to always develop a positive, fun environment for the best talent to flourish so they too can find joy at work. He is the father of 3 wonderful daughters and married for 28 years where he finds his greater joy.
Patty assisted Kelly in creating LeadingEdge Personnel. From developing policies and procedures, recruiting the first employee, filling the first job, writing the first paycheck and billing the first customer, she has done it all. Patty cried and shouted “they like us, they really like us” when we received payment for our first invoice! And yes, she really cried. In her spare time, you might find Patty at any of the great wineries that Texas has to offer.

Once she has her 3rd cup of coffee and catches up on Facebook, she oversees our Accounting Department and keeps our money press going.
