Kelly has only been in Portland a short time and has already started to make an impact by sharing her love for individuals with disabilities and children with cancer. She recently moved here from San Antonio, Texas where she spent her career working with various nonprofits.

Kelly’s career has transitioned from serving families one-on-one as a Case Manager to furthering her impact to implement change on a larger scale through fundraising and administration.

Her most recent role was serving as the Director of Community and Donor Relations at Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultra-accessible theme park designed specifically for individuals with special needs. When deciding to make the move to Portland, she came across Harper’s Playground and immediately felt connected to the model and mission.

Kelly spends her free time exploring all of Portland’s good eats and drinks and soaking in every bit of nature.

In a world full of diversity, it is vital that our children and next generation embrace those differences. Harper's Playground allows for curiosity and exploration in a fun and inviting environment.
