Kelly O’Connor


Kelly joined Little Kids Rock in May 2015. As Sr. Manager, Institutional Giving, Kelly helps manage the daily operations of the institutional giving portfolio, which includes stewarding relationships with current grantors and institutional donors as well as researching and cultivating prospective funding relationships. Prior to joining the Little Kids Rock team, Kelly worked for two years as a Grants Specialist in the Sponsored Programs Administration office of the Nathan S. Kline Institute within the New York State Office of Mental Health.

Kelly holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Caldwell University and a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology, focusing on Human Development and Social Intervention, from New York University. She is particularly passionate about fostering positive psychosocial outcomes in children through the medium of music. Kelly is very excited to bring her psychology background, and love of country music, to the Little Kids Rock team.

In her free time, Kelly enjoys reading, dining out, and listening to music—in the car, at home, anywhere!
