Kelley graduated from the University of Maine where she earned a Bachelor's of Science in Education. She began her career working as an Ed Tech III in the SAD #64 district in Corinth, Maine. In 1995, Kelley joined Amicus as a classroom Teacher (now Program Specialist) at the Bouchea Center for Learning back when it was still known as the Multiple Handicap Center of Penobscot Valley (MHCPV). She spent 4 years in this role, learning and growing while developing a strong passion for working with the individuals served by Amicus. In 1999, Kelley left the agency to be a Special Education teacher for a local high school. After a short time away, Kelley returned, realizing her heart was truly with Amicus and with helping to enhance the lives of those served. In 2006, Kelley continued her growth and was promoted to Program Director of the Bouchea Center for Learning where she currently remains, greatly committed to helping Amicus accomplish its vision.
