Hi! I’m Kellie S. Thompson. Thanks for stopping by.
I am a single woman who lives in Springdale, Arkansas. I am a Database Manager for Ozark Mountain Poultry.
I am a native of Northwest Arkansas and my family has been in this area for three generations. My Dad’s side of the family has been in Madison County, Arkansas since the early 1800s. My Mom’s side was in Northeast Arkansas from the early 1800s moving to the Northwest Arkansas area in the mid 1900s. Before that both sides of the family were in Tennessee and Kentucky with some stops in Missouri.
I attended Springdale High School and followed that with the University of Arkansas for both a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Industrial Engineering. I was in the second class to use the new Bell Engineering Center at the University.
In my spare time, I research my family history and practice my photography. I am what I consider to be an intermediate to advanced hobbyist with my family history but a very amateur photographer. I have attended a couple of events with the Northwest Arkansas Photographic Society and I have really enjoyed them. I am going to try to find more time in the coming months to practice my photography.
I am a past president of the now-defunct Washington County Arkansas Genealogical Society. I spent several years working with the society but over time attendance deteriorated until there simply wasn’t enough interest to keep the society active.
I enjoy spending time with my extended family and especially keeping up with my sister and brother’s families. I usually see at least part of them on the weekend.
I am also an avid reader. My current favorite authors are Lynn Leite, Nora Roberts (both as Nora Roberts and as JD Robb) and Nalini Singh. I also enjoy watching TV Crime shows such as Midsomer Murders and Dateline. My favorite TV show of all time was West Wing! You can also catch me watching political news shows at least a couple times a week or Biographical series and movies. I especially love historical biographies.
