Kelley joined the SSVA Board in 2019. Kelley is the owner of Gondring Law, PLLC where she focuses her practice on collaborative divorce, mediation, and divorce litigation.
Kelley is the daughter and granddaughter of artists, and the Sawtooth has been a family affair for years. From weaving, drawing and pottery classes for the adults to winter and summer camps for her daughters, her family has benefitted from the varied offerings at the SSVA for the last 20 years. Her father, Kim Gondring, teaches in the Wood Department at Sawtooth (and has provided countless beautiful pieces for both her home and office). Kelley loves the fact that the SSVA provides a pathway into the arts for community members who haven’t yet realized their own artistic abilities.
After graduating from law school at UNC School of Law in 2009, Kelley returned to Winston-Salem with her husband, Jason Bragg. They have two elementary schoolers who attend Arts Based School in downtown Winston-Salem. Kelley enjoys nature walks through Graylyn & Reynolda Village with her family, hosting fancy dinner parties (except when there’s a pandemic), and early-morning spirited bike rides with friends.
