Kellie Wilhite has been serving the mission of ACCESS for more than 11 years as Director of Development. She oversees all fundraising and marketing efforts and collaborates with the ACCESS Board of Directors to develop and meet strategic operational goals for the organization. She shines at building meaningful relationships with individuals, corporations, and foundations to encourage philanthropic support for the innovative specialized programs of ACCESS.
Kellie feels her most rewarding experiences come in writing and communicating success stories so supporters understand how their investments of time and resources are making an impact to build brighter futures for children and young adults with developmental delays and learning disabilities. Her passion to make a difference is evident in her work ethic and belief that all persons have the potential to learn, the capacity for change and the right to live a meaningful life filled with independence and new opportunities.
Kellie loves fishing, hiking, lake activities and all things outdoors with her family. Her hobbies include a love of gardening that is inspired by working with the students in the ACCESS Garden Program, art, interior design and treasured time with friends on trail runs.
