Kay Bell was born in Jacksonville, Texas where she was raised on a farm with her parents and siblings. Farming was something Kay did not have in her mind to do when she was preparing for her future. However, the need to live a healthier and more sustainable life motivated Kay to catch on to her roots of farming. Kay now resides in Waco, Texas.
Kay is a member of the community Race Relation Coalition, an organization that brings diverse races together while breaking down racism. In 2013 Kay founded the Global Revive Organization.
