A native of Stuart, Florida, Kelly Diaz is a committed community activist whose involvements include the Jay Fund, Art with A Heart and BMC Beaches.

Before “retiring” after her oldest child was born, Kelly worked as a paralegal for several years at a local law firm, specializing in medical malpractice defense.  She was involved in all aspects of cases, including obtaining medical experts and assisting at trial.  More recently, she has been involved in several business interests with her husband, Mike Diaz. Their most recent venture is the restaurant KC Crave, located in Jacksonville Beach, which the Florida Times Union called, “…a one-of-a-kind experience in Jacksonville.”

Kelly and Mike have been married for 26 years, and have lived in Atlantic Beach for the majority of that time.  They have been members of Selva Marina Country Club and St. Paul’s Catholic Church for many years, and have four children. They have been active Friends and supporters of the Florida Theatre for many years, and were donors to the theatre’s most recent Capital Campaign.
