She previously worked as a consultant and scientist in the private sector.

“Kelly brings strong technical credentials to her position at IPC,” said Chris Mitchell, IPC vice president of global government relations. “With more than two decades as a public health scientist, Kelly has influenced and strengthened environmental and occupational health policies inside and outside of government.
