+ Kelly V. Dolan
Kelly first got her start in the entertainment industry through dance and acting. She had the opportunity to light up the stage alongside some of the greats as she toured & worked with Stellar Award Winning Gospel Singer Donald Lawrence, R. Kelly and Jay-Z to name a few. She has a live event and commercial history with products such as Kroger, Lady Footlocker, Adidas, McDonald's, Hooters, Von Dutch, Crunch Fitness, Iphone's Square, and Feed and Go.
She received her B.A. at Columbia College, Chicago for Dance and Theater and once arriving in Los Angeles, she landed an acting role on the Emmy-Nominated Children's show, Hip Hop Harry, where she played Pinky, the fun and hip girl that the kids looked up to. It was a dream job where she was able to act, dance, and be a positive influence for young people.
You can currently catch her while watching your favorite shows as she appears in several commercials in person or in voice over work. Plus, for all you Dinosaur lovers, tune into THE SyFy Channel or Netflix, as Kelly plays a lab technician, Graham, in "Age of Dinosaurs", where she worked opposite Ronnie Cox. You can also check her out in the award-winning action sci-fi short film "Sunset Rising 0.5: The Deliverer", where she stars as Anna, which is available on Itunes. In addition to being able to bring the drama, this girl LOVES to LAUGH and make others laugh. She has performed in a number of sketches, featured on several “Funny or Die” videos, was in a sketch for “What the Funny” with Damon Wayans Jr and currently is co-star of a hilariously charming web-series, "Nerd Girls", about the adventures of two awkward girls, Hope & Joy. (nerd-girls.tv).
While acting in Los Angeles she picked up another skill, making her a triple threat... Hosting. She is currently hosting and co-producing for ABC News Radio's "Live With Aaron and Kelly", which aired on nbc news radio 1050AM for 2 1/2 years and is currently on abc news radio KMET 1490AM on Saturdays & Sundays, in southern California. It is also on Itunes, Stitcher.com, and has just been picked up on Roku & MiCasa Broadcast Network, making for a smooth transition from radio to TV! She has had the opportunity to work with several outlets as a host, numerous live events, charity events, film festivals and has covered everything from WWE to BET to SAG Awards to MTV! (See hosting resume). Her chameleon like personality allows her to connect with people instantly. Her genuine care for humanity and her ability to find humor in everything is why people enjoy watching her in action!
She has interviewed stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Howie Mandel, Dwayne Wade, Jon Voight, Stan Lee, Kim Kardashian, Ne-Yo, Dane Cook, Kat Williams, Eva Longoria to name a few and also hosted "Mitzvah Schmitvah" at the famous Jon Lovitz club. (see hosting highlights here)
Kelly prides herself on her professionalism and desire to entertain her fans and audiences. She is true to herself and her constituents and looks to broaden her horizons with projects panned for the very near future. One ideal drives her the most, when you do something you love every day, you will never have a job, you will have a fun career, please follow hers'!
Kelly is also co-owner of Step It Up,LLC, a mentorship workshop for dancers. (For more info go to www.stepitupllc.com.)
She is so excited to be stepping it up in her own career as well as helping others do the same!
