Kellita's dynamic aura and genuine love for people have always been prevalent and her energy and charm will captivate any audience.

Theatre Company, Feelings (The Hudson Theatre), for which she won an NAACP Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actress, and The Thirteenth Thorn (Complex Theatre), for which she was nominated for an NAACP Theatre Award for Best Actress.

In her spare time, she practices other art forms such as fencing, tae kwon do, snowmobile riding, tennis and recently, she's taken on sculpting. Kellita admits, "I envision myself as the next action babe...watch out Angelina Jolie."
