Karen Max Kelly, Treasurer

Karen Max Kelly moved to Monterey in 2014, became a DWMC member in 2015, and joined the DWMC Board as Treasurer in 2016. She has worked in fundraising and executive leadership at progressive non-profits; as campaign staff for progressive winning candidates; and in Democratic Party leadership positions in Alaska and Virginia.  Those experiences have taught her about the value of managing money well and using it strategically to make good things happen in the world--like the election of progressive women to political office! When she's not being the DWMC Treasurer, Karen spends her energies working in accounting at a Monterey non-profit, running the hills of the Central Coast, or reading novels and eating bonbons.
