Kelly Klick (Tjepkes)

Kelly Klick (formerly Tjepkes) is from the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. She had no prior experience with beekeeping (except an appreciation for honey), but one of her teachers at North Hennepin Community College suggested she look into the competition though she’d never considered doing anything like the honey queen program but thought, “why not?” In order to prepare she studied a lot of books that her teacher lent her and she took an introductory course in beekeeping at the University of Minnesota.
