“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax
Kelly Stone is a sex educator, comedian, single mother, river enthusiast, lecturer, and environmental activist, and so many other things. (Y’all, we all know that women wear an infinite number of hats. ) This summer, she became the 8th woman to paddle a C1 canoe to the finish line of the Texas Water Safari, known as “The World’s Toughest Canoe Race.” She is currently running statewide to become a Texas Railroad Commissioner to help educate Texans about what the Railroad Commission does, advocating for an agency name change to reflect it’s true function in oil and gas regulations. She’s given a TEDx Talk, read her journal in Mortified, and performed in the Women in Comedy Festival, but she’s still trying to figure out how to keep her boys from smearing Greek yogurt on the furniture.
