Kelli D. Kelley is the founder and CEO of Hand to Hold, a national nonprofit that supports families before, during and after a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) stay or infant loss. After the premature birth of her two children, Kelley lacked the support she craved: someone to hold her hand through the difficult NICU journey and the stress of bringing home a medically fragile child. This experience drives Kelley and her staff to offer support to families through Hand to Hold’s in-hospital programs, counseling services, support groups, podcasts and one-on-one peer mentoring. Kelley also serves as vice president on the board of directors for the National Coalition for Infant Health and is a founding member of the NICU Parent Network. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, listening to podcasts and volunteering with her daughter through the National Charity League.
