Kelly BLYTH - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Many organizations in the Spokane area offer a variety of activities, tools, classes, camps, and events for families - how do we bring this information all together with a focus on kids? Working with the community to provide opportunities and guidance to families, we are determined to establish an efficient, reliable space to share useful information with parents, caregivers, and kids. It takes a village to raise a child, and we want to provide the resources for this village to thrive.
Kelly grew up in Montana and moved to Spokane, where she graduated from Eastern Washington University with a degree in Business Management and Human Resource Management. Kelly worked in the insurance industry in Spokane and Portland for 16 years and then went on to start up an event management company in 2016. She is passionate about investing in people, the importance of mentorship, and the power of learning and education. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two kids, and yellow lab Daisy. Kelly is a lifelong learner, loves anything outdoors, and enjoys cooking, gardening, running, creating projects around the house, and spending time celebrating any occasion with family and friends!
