Meet Our Team
Kelly was raised in the small south Georgia town of Thomasville. During undergrad at the University of Georgia, Kelly met his wife, Caroline, and both of them were heavily involved at RUF and Redeemer PCA. Upon graduation in 2011, Kelly and Caroline got married and served as RUF interns at Mississippi State University for two years. In 2013, the Jacksons moved to Jackson, MS, where Kelly continued working with college students at First Presbyterian Church while attending Reformed Theological Seminary for his MDiv. Kelly and Caroline have two children, Nora and Johnny, and they are extremely grateful for the opportunity to love and serve college students in Tallahassee!
Victoria was born and raised in Northern California. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley and it was here she came to know the grace and love of the Lord through RUF. She loves golden retrievers, tacos and dancing, as all Marshes do. Though she’s loved the golden state, she is so excited to serve the community of RUF at FSU (and for some real college football)!
I am from Ellenwood, Georgia, located in the metro of Atlanta. I attended the University of Georgia, where I recently graduated with a major in Religion and a minor in Global Health. In my free time I love going on walks, especially to explore new places. I also enjoy doing some photography while on these casual strolls. Another thing I love doing is having conversations about God and life, which is part of what led me to become a RUF intern. I want to help students live a fully integrated life, where their belief in Jesus pervades every part of it.
Rachel is from Sumter SC and graduated from Anderson University with a degree in Elementary Education. Rachel loves connecting with people and helping others grow. During her undergrad years, RUF helped Rachel grow deeper in her relationship with the Lord and showed her what is means to live in a true gospel-centered community. In her free time, you can find Rachel exploring new places with friends, hiking, photographing weddings and families, and sitting outside with a good book in hand. One day (maybe in retirement) Rachel dreams of becoming a National Park Ranger. She is so excited about moving to the sunshine state to serve with RUF at Florida State University!
