She is the only child of Maureen and former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay, and is of French, Dutch-Indonesian, and French ancestry. Kelly was raised by her mother, with whom she moved to many different places around the United States. They ultimately settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Kelly went to Valley High School. After graduating, she went back to Los Angeles to pursue a modeling career. While doing a test shoot for an agency, she was approached by a former Playboy Playmate who wanted to manage her. The Playmate placed Kelly as a receptionist at a surgeon’s office that would give her breast augmentation in exchange for working hours. When Kelly declined the procedure, she was fired. However, this exposure to the medical field led to her attending school to become a surgeon’s assistant. She went on to work as a scrub technician for four years.
