Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, Kelsey drove her beat-up Pontiac down to New Orleans and joined the United Way in the rebuilding effort. She lived in a tent city with displaced locals, cared for children in a FEMA trailer park, and learned the necessity of active community service. Kelsey went on to serve in the areas of poverty alleviation, human rights, and women’s empowerment, specifically by legal consulting for the Supreme Court of Rwanda, advocating for Habitat for Humanity, representing immigrants in their quest for political/religious asylum, and teaching in Central Africa, Japan, and Germany.
Upon graduating from law school, Kelsey joined Collins Aerospace where she led teams in multi-million dollar negotiations (over $1B in revenue) and equipped women leaders as the Women’s Forum Co-Chair. Kelsey joins World Hope International’s team as General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer.
