Kelsey holds a bachelor's degree in International Relations from Tufts University. At Tufts, she found her passion for education and equity when the lack of racial and economic diversity on campus revealed that education was not the great equalizer she once believed it was. Kelsey became determined to contribute to quality education for all students.
In 2020, Kelsey returned home to Miami to teach high school English through Teach For America. The pandemic classroom exposed the deep educational inequities in under-resourced public schools, including technology gaps and a lack of computer literacy. Her experience as a public school teacher furthered her commitment to improving educational opportunities for Black, Brown and immigrant communities in Miami. In her free time, Kelsey enjoys trying new restaurants with her friends and family, roller skating, reading and choosing new hair colors.
