About ME

MY BACKGROUND

Kelsey started wrestling in 2002, during her Senior year of high school—but only after she was dared to join the wrestling team. At the time, she didn’t even know girls wrestled, but she was trying to prove that she could last two weeks on the team. Today, she trains at the elite level and competes around the world. “I guess I won that dare,” said Campbell.


Campbell was the first female wrestler to compete for Arizona State University, where she won two College National titles. She also trains with the US national team and competed in the 2012 London Games. Campbell is training in preparation to win the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.


Kelsey is the youngest of two. Her mother is from Oregon, and her father is originally from Jamaica. Her brother has served in the US Army since 1998.


Outside of wrestling, Campbell enjoys singing, dancing, and writing music. She also coaches camps and clinics, and is due to achieve an MBA from the Keller Graduate School of Management in December of 2019.
