Kelley Higney is the founder of Bug Bite Thing, partnering alongside her mother, Ellen McAlister. After relocating to South Florida, Kelley was unprepared for how mosquitos would impact her family’s quality of life. Determined to find a solution, Kelley discovered a product that uses suction to eliminate the irritant and provide instant relief.

Prior to starting Bug Bite Thing, Kelley worked for 15 years in her family’s international export and distribution business. Kelley hopes to inspire other mompreneurs to pursue their dreams and start their own business. Learn more at Bug Bite Thing.
