Kelly Stone, MA, CHES
Kelly Stone is a sexual health educator and college lecturer who describes her stand-up comedy as "edutainment". Born in Houston, Texas to a 17-year old mother, she worked hard to avoid repeating the teen mom cycle by being an over-involved super nerd-she even played on the JV football team. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences at Texas State University and a Master of Arts in Health Education and Promotion from The University of Texas at Austin where she focused her thesis research on adolescent sexual behavior.
Stone has worked as a Prevention Specialist to implement drug, alcohol, pregnancy, and violence prevention programs in Philadelphia Public Schools, and she has served as the Health Education Specialist at Texas State facilitating presentations in classrooms, retreats, trainings, and organization meetings to promote healthy behaviors related to sexual health, nutrition, stress management, sexual violence, alcohol, body image, etc.
Stone first performed stand-up comedy in 2006 at an open mic in Philadelphia and has been hooked ever since. She has shared the stage with comedians such as Nick Vatterott, Bonnie McFarlane, DJ Dougg Pound, Thea Vidale, Brody Stevens, Caroline Picard, and Neil Hamburger. Stone speaks to schools and universities about a variety of health topics and is still trying to figure out how to keep her boys from smearing Greek yogurt on the furniture.
