Meet The Staff

Meet Kelly, a member of the Development Team at Reach Out and Read’s National Center, where she focuses on building corporate and foundation relationships for the organization. She specializes in grant writing and serving as a brand “evangelist” who supports national projects and Reach Out and Read’s local affiliate programs throughout the country.

What does she love most about working at Reach Out and Read?

“I love the connection between the fundraising work and the end result – that the hours spent writing proposals will, down the line, result in the joy of a child receiving their first book from their doctor and the magical connection between the parent and child when they cuddle up together and read it,” says Kelly.
