Red Oak Recovery®’s administrative staff has a passion for helping others. While many of them understand the healing power of fresh air in a rejuvenating, comforting setting, the addiction, trauma, and mental health recovery field requires people who truly care about others. Without their hard work and dedication, Red Oak Recovery® wouldn’t be the successful treatment center it is today.

Marketing and Administrative Coordinator
Through growing up in a Military family, Kelcie moved around quite often. She spent a good chunk of her formative years overseas in Europe, where she developed her passion for music. This is what brought Kelcie to the Asheville area back in 2015. She studied Music Business and Audio Production at a local college and eventually started her own Record Label, PowderKeg Records, LLC, where she was able to strengthen her skills in the field of Advertising and Marketing.
This led to Kelcie deciding to pursue a Master’s degree in IMC and a career in the field of marketing. She plans to take the skills that she gained from both her education and her time spent as a working professional in the Music Industry to promote Red Oak Recovery®’s lifesaving programs. In her free time, Kelcie enjoys playing drums in her indie-rock band, Room Twenty-Seven, traveling to new places with friends, taking photos, hanging out with her cat, Roslyn, and attempting to try every single roast of coffee that WNC has to offer.
