Meet Kelly

Secretary |  Executive Board Member

Nothing is more important to me than family and during the 2016 campaign Pierre’s brother Andrew became part of my family. I have incredible admiration for the Schreyer family and it is a great honor to be able to contribute to Pierre’s legacy of love and kindness by serving as a member of the board.

Kelly is a native Texan, who currently resides in New York City. She graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Political Science. Upon graduating, Kelly was an intern turned Accounting Associate on Hillary Clinton's first Presidential campaign. After which, she joined President Obama's Administration, first as a Special Assistant to the Director of Budget and Resource Management at USAID and later as the Deputy White House Liaison at the U.S. Department of State.

While Washington, DC provided many opportunities she could only have dreamed of a few years before, the pull of Texas, and her family, became too strong to ignore. With a new niece and Sister-in-Law in the picture, she returned home, bringing her experience in democratic politics with her as the Operations Director of Battleground Texas. However, the unfinished business of Hillary Clinton potentially becoming the first female President called again. Kelly moved to Brooklyn a year later to serve as the Treasury Manager at Hillary for America, where she was responsible for managing and reporting on all receivables for three separate legal entities. Now, Kelly is the Chief Operating Officer of Onward Together, a 501(c)4 social advocacy organization.

As a Leo, Kelly is fiercely loyal, passionate and outspoken. She cares deeply about her family and friends and believes we should all work towards making our country more equal, fair and just. She loves reading, wine and sarcasm. "Nothing is more important to me than family and during the 2016 campaign Pierre's brother Andrew became part of my family.
