Kelly's parents were farmers from the New Zealand area of Earth. They had spent there whole lives living nearby one another when Williams parents Katherine and Robin had brought farmland on the edge or Olivia's parents estate.
Kelly spent more time at her grandparents' home (Robin was retired Starfleet Marines and Katherine was retired Starfleet security) than in her own home. She studied and excelled at a number of outdoor sports which from a very young age became her passion.
As Kelly grew up she very quickly realised she did not have the same interests as many of her girl friends, whilst on the outside she had the looks of a cat walk model Kelly was more likely to be found on a shooting range on bungee jumping out of a shuttle craft than she was to be found anywhere near a cat walk. Kelly and her brother Heath entered Starfleet Marines together, Heath had just come out of school whilst Kelly had spent many years being very much a free spirit in her home town. Kelly had become well known for her exploits in the mountains before she followed her brother into the academy. Kelly found herself quickly at home in the marines, her unrivalled energy levels and her ability to fight and learn at impressive levels meant she qualified in the 98th percentile in her class. Whilst many felt that Kelly should at this point have entered officer training she instead took up the opportunity to enlist as a soldier and follow the lead of others.
Kelly was assigned to the newly formed 'Wolf Pack' under the command of Devlin Danar were she served for some 5 years as a special operations soldier often behind enemy lines before the Wolf Pack was dispanded. Kelly was promoted to Sergeant and handed her own platoon of black ops soldiers which she led for a further 2 years before returning to earth to be a hand to hand combat instructor at Starfleet Academy.
In 2385 Kelly entered into an exhibition tournament at Starfleet Academy where she met and fought the eventual winner Cyrus Webb. Cyrus was at the time a prize fighter but a year later when posted to SB118 as Chief of Security Cyrus contacted Kelly offering her the chance to leave the marines and join him as a security officer. Impressed by her sheer grit and determination as much as her ability to fight in the arena Cyrus was keen to have Kelly's skills at his disposal.
She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, gymnastics, and disguises. Kelly is active, a life long athlete, who prefers sports with a touch of danger. Kelly tends to live in the moment. Given her career and her preference for sports with a touch of danger (extreme sports), she has never thought of herself as the settle down and raise a lot of kids type though she has considered the notion, She is not a scientist nor does she want to be. She would much rather kick down the door than spend two days cracking the programming code for the lock mechanism. She's the one who would take the dare to stay alone in the haunted house overnight. If she fears anything, its waking up and being 80, realizing she's had a life half-lived. She doesn't want to settle down and marry, raise kids, and watch others go out there, take chances, do things.
