About Me


Madelyn Barrante

Born in Pittsburgh, PA

Lives & works in Johnstown, PA


My name is Madelyn Kelley, growing up in suburban Pittsburgh shaped most of my childhood experiences, which included my family and close friends. After losing my father at the age of 18 helped me realize how important fostering those relationships are. Remembering those we have lost and honoring those traditions helps to heal the sole. But, equally as important is putting forth the effort to make the existing a priority in life putting forth the effort to ensure their success.
