Kelly Keehn Joins Team Tripepi Smith
Tripepi Smith welcomed Kelly Keehn to the team as Operations Manager on April 19, 2021.
“I am excited to be able to collaborate with such incredible and talented individuals, who take pride in their work and service to local governments and their constituents,” said Kelly. “Tripepi Smith’s devotion to ‘Always Be Learning’ is phenomenal, and I’m excited to begin supporting this incredible team.”
Prior to joining Tripepi Smith, Kelly worked as the Director of Outreach for Child Creativity Lab (CCL), a non-profit dedicated to bringing STEM education to underserved youth. She played an instrumental role in client outreach and building partner relationships to develop new ways to reach this population during the pandemic. Kelly also assisted in process improvements and streamlined development of new programs while staying true to the CCL outreach mission.
With the Rancho Santiago Community College District, Kelly helped to increase visibility of the business incubator and expand the outreach of the facility to the community. She facilitated the first ever, new business launch event at the District and assisted the business development center in moving to virtual programming.
“We are excited to welcome Kelly to the Tripepi Smith family,” said Nicole Smith, Tripepi Smith Chief Financial Officer. “With her experience building partner relationships and in process improvement, we are looking forward to applying Kelly’s talents to facilitate our firm’s growth.”
Tripepi Smith has experienced tremendous growth in the last five years, growing from seven to 26 members of the team. With this growth comes complexity, and Tripepi Smith is buffing up its internal management infrastructure to help our talent remain focused on client deliveries.
Kelly is a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics. She also holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business.
