Kelly Quicksell

Volunteer Resources Manager

Started with Prepare + Prosper (P+P): I joined Prepare + Prosper in July 2016 after completing two terms of service as an AmeriCorps member with College Possible, a nonprofit that supports motivated low-income students in the journey to and through college. This past role allowed me to sharpen my organizational and communication skills, my ability to work with diverse populations, and I found a passion for the nonprofit work culture.

In my role: I am responsible for the management of the day-to-day planning and logistics of the Prepare + Prosper volunteer program. This includes recruitment, scheduling, engagement, recognition, and overall communication with our 550+ volunteers.

Geeks out over: Checklists. Crossing a task off my daily to-do list is incredibly satisfying. I am also an adrenaline junkie – or at least I try to be – I have been skydiving once and cannot wait for the next time I can jump from a plane at 15,000 feet above ground level!

When it’s not tax season: I coordinate the off-season clinics and plan for the next tax season. When not in the office, you can find me fishing Up-North at my family’s cabin or spending time with friends at a local Twin Cities restaurant.
