Kelle Green Bio Photo

Kelle Green is a curious, creative problem-solver with a wide-ranging background that includes design, photography, video, and documentary production. She’s also held career titles such as flight attendant, homeschool parent, house cleaner, marketing & communications manager, car salesperson, and soap maker. Kelle sometimes wishes she could say she worked at one thing for many, many years and is now an expert - but she values truth. She is also genuinely appreciative of the opportunity to have worked alongside and learned from incredibly wonderful and inspiring people from all different walks of life.

Kelle was lucky enough to work behind the bar of the famed Artists' Quarter Jazz Club in downtown St. Paul for its last year of operation. Nepotism played a role as the club owner happened to be her brother, Kenny Horst, who knew she had little knowledge of mixing drinks but trusted her not to raid the till.

Kelle believes in the power of good storytelling to inform, engage, and inspire joy. In her daily life, she is passionate about speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves and seeks ways to make positive change in the areas of human and non-human rights, the environment, and social justice.
