Keely grew up mostly in a small town called Ulladulla located on the South Coast of NSW. Keely joined the Navy at the tender age of 17, in April 2007, and since that time she has been posted all over the country and sailed all over the world on 7 different Navy ships. This is Keely’s second posting to the Young Endeavour, and she has found this particular position a highlight of her naval career. Her favourite memories so far are the personal journeys that the Youth Crew make during their voyages “Having the Youthies engage in the program on board and take something positive away from this experience is absolutely priceless, that is why I love being a part of this work family”.
When not at work Keely spends her time with her partner Brendon and loves being outdoors and immersed in nature.
