Kelly was one of the founding directors of Starfish (2012), however needed to resign to pursue a significant career opportunity in Western Australia.
Kelly is passionate about seeing rural areas thriving ~ with employment, services and education opportunities that are comparable to metropolitan standards. Particularly as a parent, and as someone who has grown up in the New England North West region of NSW, she would like for her family to have a few to all these things ~ and to stay in the area if they choose to!
With fourteen years experience in human services, Kelly is particularly interested in providing great services to our most vulnerable populations by way of building the capacity of service providers through strong business and quality management systems.
Kelly is currently NSW/ACT & QLD Operations Manager for St Ives Group and has previously worked as a Quality Improvement Coordinator for St Vincent de Paul’s nationally renowned Freeman House as well as a case manager with Uralla Shire Council (Tablelands Community Support Options) and the New England Brain Injury Service (NSW Health).
Kelly has a Master‘s degree in Human Services Management and Policy (Charles Sturt University) and Bachelor’s degree in Social Science & Psychology (University of New England). Her full profile is available on LinkedIn.
