“Going to Kansas City” is a series that shares the personal stories of how people came to Kansas City — and why they stayed.
Chel O’Reilly is what you might call a Kansas City super-fan.
She proudly wears a necklace with a Missouri pendant, a heart marks where Kansas City is. But all this Kansas City pride has been kind of new to O’Reilly.
Originally from the Northeast, O’Reilly was living happily in Brooklyn, N.Y., with no plans to leave. But one visit to hang out with friends in Kansas City three years ago changed her life.
