Kelly Timmons

Mentor & advocate

We are proud to induct Kelly Timmons into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.

Kelly Timmons lives with her husband, Paul, along the St. Helena Sound in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Food is an essential part of Lowcountry culture, as well as Kelly’s life experience. For ten years Kelly owned and operated a food manufacturing company where she brought over thirty different brandlines to hundreds of retail locations. Food sovereignty and security are deeply connected to Kelly’s Southern, Lowcountry heritage.

Kelly identifies as a person with a disability and has long mentored, employed, and advocated with women and girls with disabilities. She believes that the best way to honor the history of the disability rights movement is to empower its rising leaders.
