Kellie Flora Williams' passion for the law always focused on women’s rights. With her former business partner, she started the first women-owned law firm in Utah in 1980 and successfully operated it for 32 years. From its early days, the firm was known to be one that served all persons, irrespective of socio-economic status, sex, gender, race, or religion.
Kellie's passion for community service has been driven by issues of social and economic justice. She was raised in a racially diverse family, and her focus has been to educate and advocate for persons who have not been heard, seen, or given equality of power. In addition to involvement in many legal groups, she has served on the Board of South Valley Mental Health, and currently serve on the Board, and was previously Chair, of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Salt Lake.
While the social services aspect of Wasatch Community Gardens is what inspired her to join the Board of Directors, Kellie has since become an avid gardener and more fully appreciates how gardens can become the soul of a community and provide pride and creativity.
