Kelly McKee made her international debut at the junior level at the 2008 Junior Pan American Championships where Canada captured gold and it didn’t take long for people to take notice of her shot. Since then, she has played in two junior (2009, 2011) and two senior world championships (2015, 2017) and has proven herself to be a threat from the outside in every game she plays. McKee won silver with Canada at the 2015 Universiade and the FINA World League Super Final. She plays professionally in France and Greece.
