Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Kelly called Chicago home for nine years before relocating to Colorado to work as the Corporate Sponsorship and Acquisition Officer at No Barriers.
After attending school at the University of Iowa, Kelly graduated from DePaul University with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations and a minor in Design. She worked alongside creative thought leaders and innovators in special events and environment design for over eight years as an event producer. Looking to expand on her love of brands, she transitioned from live events to agency work where she spent two years at Stone Ward, No Barriers’ creative Agency-of-Record; it was there she fell in love with No Barriers.
Kelly has often been told that her enthusiasm, drive to exceed expectations and commitment to what she loves is infectious. Cultivating strong partnerships with No Barriers’ corporate partners, she works to elevate brand messaging and inspire communities through storytelling, employee engagement opportunities and fundraising campaigns.
When not working, Kelly is soaking in everything that the west has to offer…and bringing along her dog Gigi whenever possible.
