Kelly brings more than a decade of animal welfare experience to her role as Director of Engagement for The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement. In this role, Kelly is responsible for helping our members further succeed in their animal welfare careers by communicating and marketing membership services and programs, including continuing education and professional development opportunities.
