Writer Bios


Fresh off undergraduate graduation from the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University, Kelly Butorac struck gold with being able to call Tiger Oak an employment home. She lived and breathed the college news scene as a member of the award-winning newspaper team, but made the flop to magazines easily. She enjoys telling a person’s story and giving a voice to those who may not be able to on their own. As a writer for the Community Lifestyle Magazines, she relishes meeting community restaurant and shop owners, event planners and local heroes. When not furiously writing, Kelly loves to cheer on the Twins, curl up with a good book, laugh with friends and return to her old stomping grounds. Got a good story? Email Kelly with your ideas and comments.
