About Nicole Kelley

I’ve worked in communications my entire career, from the public to the private sector, from education to professional sports. I’ve been lucky to interact with people from all backgrounds in a variety of fields. It’s given me more patience and the ability to ebb and flow, pivot and pause. My previous position as a journalist and public relations professional has helped me become a better listener and see others’ perspectives with an open mind and heart.

I found my role in nonprofit fundraising for a college foundation especially rewarding. So many people are denied opportunities to go to college due to cost. Watching students, specifically first-generation and former foster kids, cross the stage at graduation inspired and gratified me.

As is everyone who meets her, I’m a big fan of Amanda—the person she is, in addition to the work she does in her professional and personal life—and wanted to be a part of her team. People are treated with compassion and care at DuBois Levias Law Group, from the team to our clients. There’s no drama, no office politics, and no room for egos here. Everyone, no matter their position, is treated with the same level of respect.

I was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan. My partner is based in Seattle, and I love how much the area reminds me of home. I love the access to mountains, water, and the change of seasons.

Outside of work, I dive into anything involving the water, from surfing to scuba diving to floating. I’m passionate about keeping our waters clean and making sure people have access to clean water, so am a lifetime member of the Surfrider Foundation. I’m also passionate about my community and volunteer for The IF Project, a collaboration of currently and formerly incarcerated adults, community partners, and law enforcement focused on holistic intervention and the reduction and prevention of incarceration and recidivism.
