Kim Kelly (born April 4, 1962 in Halifax, Nova Scotia as Kim Ackles) is a Canadian curler, throwing second stones for Mary-Anne Arsenault's Nova Scotia rink. From 1989 until 2006 she played multiple positions for Colleen Jones with whom she won five national championships and two world championships.

Kelly had retired from competitive curling in 2006 but returned in 2010 playing third for Nancy Delahunt, failing to secure a spot in the provincial playdowns. She would then go onto join former teammate Mary-Anne Arsenault, playing the second position for the 2011/2012 season.[2]

For the 2012/2013 season Arsenault and Kelly will reunite with former skip Colleen Jones, with the goal of reaching the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Jones will either play third or second position, while Arsenault will skip. Arsenault's current lead Jennifer Baxter, will play lead, while her third Stephanie McVicar, is expected to join the team as the fifth. Nancy Delahunt has offered to join the team as coach or manager.[3] Since this announcement McVicar has left the team to play with Heather Smith-Dacey, and Delahunt has joined the team as the 5th. Jones will play third, and Kelly will remain at second. [4]
