Fall Recipes: Kelly Strum’s Spiced Apple Punch

Kelly Strum spent most of her childhood in Moran’s Restaurant & Catering being the daughter of its owner and general manager. She has started working when she was still 16 years old. Despite her family being very hands-on in managing their business, her true love and passion for animals gave her the courage to squeeze in working for Morrison Animal Inn and Chelsea Animal Hospital.
