Skelly has worked for The Commercial Review in various capacities since summer 2016 and is currently a freelance reporter.

She first joined The CR as an intern in 2016 and then became a part-time reporter in January 2017 while still a student at Ball State University. She moved to a full-time reporting role after graduating from BSU in May 2018 with a double major in journalism and psychology. She cut back her duties with the newspaper in August 2019 as she returned to Ball State to begin pursuing a master's degree in psychology.

Skelly previously served as assistant news editor for the student-run Ball State Daily News during the 2015-16 school year and was a reporter for the publication during the fall 2016 semester. 

A South Bend native, she enjoys reading and spending time with her family.
