Kelley, a New Jersey-native, graduated cum laude from Drexel’s Kline School of Law in 2021. During law school, she served as executive articles editor for the Drexel Law Review and completed internships with the Federal Communications Commission, an intellectual property firm, and the district court of New Jersey. Kelley also participated in the Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project, teaching local high school students about their constitutional rights in the classroom. Before law school, Kelley worked in higher education communications, which inspired her to pursue law as a means of advocating for the free exchange of ideas in education. In her free time, you’ll find Kelley watching true-crime documentaries, endlessly scrolling TikTok, or walking her son (a tiny Yorkshire Terrier) around the City of Brotherly Love.
