Born and raised in Australia's Sunshine State, Queensland, a very eager Kelsie took up acting at the age of 4, after no acting school would accept her at 2 years old. As an adult, her most notable training was with the Atlantic Acting School in NYC, USA and in 2017 Kelsie re-connected with her English heritage in London, to complete her Masters Degree at the Guildford School of Acting, UK.

To date, Kelsie has had a vibrant & exciting career, acting her way across Australia, UK, Mexico & now, after successfully securing her US green card, Los Angeles, USA.

In 2020, Kelsie starred in 3 feature films, set for cinema & streaming platform release this year. Two of these were US productions shot in Mexico & gave her the opportunity to brush up on her Spanish speaking skills, under the Direction of Rafael Altamira & production houses Guerilla Video & Diaz Films. One of which will be her debut feature length writing collaboration with Warner Brothers & Apple TVs Ted Lasso star, Cristo Fernández, who she has worked with extensively in his film company Espectro MX Films. The feature film is a bilingual rom-com & is titled No Translation Required where Kelsie & Cristo play the romantic leads.

Prior to this, she co-formed the London based theatre company Encompass Theatre Collective, which wrote, devised and toured innovative & often immersive theatre across Europe.

Also noteworthy are the two Best Actress Awards she has to her name, for her work in both film, at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival, & on stage at the Ipswich Festival.
