Kelly C. Bailo, P.E. – Engineer


Kelly Bailo is an engineering consultant and Professional Engineer who has, since the inception of A-REC, gained experience in the Engineering Drawing and Analysis and other duties required for Accident Reconstruction.

As a Mechanical Engineer, Kelly was involved early on in the field of Finite Element Structural Analysis. She has extensive experience in the areas of Static and Dynamic Structural Analyses using Finite Element Methods including analyzing vehicle systems. She has done research with Smart Materials, Acoustic applications and Composite Materials.

After graduating from Michigan Technological University (MTU), Kelly worked as a design engineer with Emerson Electric. She worked on her Masters Degree in Engineering Mechanics while working full time, graduating in 1987 from the University of Missouri, Rolla. Kelly spent several years studying and performing research activities at the University of Michigan in the PhD program in Mechanical Engineering. Kelly chose to spend the last few years raising two daughters and volunteering.
