Afterschool Program Director
In August of 2013, Kelsey began working for Side by Side Kids as an afterschool teacher at T.A. Brown Elementary. She quickly fell in love with the organization and the children and families it serves. In January of 2015, after graduating with a B.A. in Psychology from UT Austin, Kelsey transitioned to the role of Site Coordinator, and then, one year later, to the role of Afterschool Program Director. She feels blessed to have experienced the ins and outs of Side by Side Kids and is excited for the future of the organization.
Kelsey is passionate about teaching, counseling, and empowering youth. She has experience with children at non-profits in Dallas, Austin, and Peru. So far, her time at SBSK has been absolutely incredible, and she strongly believes that God is using the ministry to transform the lives of many.
Outside of work, Kelsey spends quality time with books, journals, Netflix, family, and friends. She hopes to pass on her love of learning and exploring the world around her to all of the SBSK students. Her prayer for the kids is that they would love and honor God, other people, and themselves.
