With a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Iowa, Kelly held a variety of corporate marketing positions early in her career and eventually found herself serving in healthcare focused nonprofit organizations in roles ranging from Major Gift Officer to Executive Director
Most recently, she developed a first ever CSR strategy and philanthropic programming for a Fortune 500 corporation. Kelly built and implemented a corporate foundation growing their charitable giving to $9M in grant programs, financial and in-kind support in just under three years.
Kelly loves a good challenge and most especially an opportunity to help build a program or solve a problem to better suit the community. She enjoys her free time with her family (three children) doing something active and outdoors like community 5K runs, bike rides, attending a baseball game or walking their dog.
