Hi, I'm Kelly

An entrepreneur and thought leader focused on youth innovation and the future of work.

here's the deal...

My passion is bridging opportunity gaps to prepare you for the future and create pathways to drive action for the global challenges you care about.

I founded BridgingTheGap Ventures with the goal of bringing together the world’s top decision makers and industry leaders with young changemakers, to usher in a new era for humanity that is more empowered, connected, and collaborative than the status quo. Our Alliance network now reaches over 15 million young changemakers under 30 across 243 nations.  Addressing the widening youth employment gaps, our Future-Ready Certificate program equips emerging young talent with  free, accessible skills training led by experts around the world.

To launch the UN Decade of Acton I founded the YOUNGA Forum—making history with a first-of-its-kind global youth takeover of the United Nations using virtual reality. 

My team and I are also hard at work to launch a new app, MyEffect, to provide a clear pathway for action and connect you with tangible steps to create impact for the local and global challenges you see.

At the heart of everything I do is a mission to foster unity, inclusion and impact—so we can build better future for all.
