Volunteer Tutor: Kelly Wempe

Kelly has been a tutor at OLC since 2011. Prior to that she spent several years as a community college professor teaching a variety of business and accounting courses, both in Illinois, and here in Northwest Arkansas. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Avila University in Kansas City and her CPA certificate; she began her master’s degree at the University of Central Missouri but switched to Quincy University when her husband made a job change to Quincy, Illinois. Immediately after finishing her MBA in Quincy, they relocated again, this time to Fayetteville, Arkansas. She and her husband, Joe, have three grown children and she enjoys spending lots of time with her husband traveling and visiting with family and friends. She enjoys making quilts and attending Kansas City Royals baseball games with her husband whenever she can. She finds tutoring very rewarding. Moving often, changing jobs and schools, all while raising three children has given her an understanding of some of the many challenges faced by the students she tutors.
