We are excited to welcome Kelly Briggs to the Denton County Friends of the Family Marketing and Development Team!
A Denton native, Kelly has deep roots in the Denton community. Moving to Seattle for eight years, Kelly returned to Denton and was part of the first graduating class out of Billy Ryan High School. After attending UNT, Kelly moved to Denver to complete her degree in Speech Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Working for brands and organizations like CBS, Clear Channel, Disney, the Dallas Stars and Susan G. Komen, Kelly brings 20 years of marketing, communications, community relations, media relations, fundraising and development experience with her to Denton County Friends of the Family. Her time in for profit and nonprofit sectors has created a large network of local Denton community, DFW area and national contacts. DCFOF’s mission has been imprinted on Kelly’s heart from a very young age when she would create care packages with her grandmother for women and children entering the shelter. Kelly is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, while partnering with our community to promote safety, hope, healing, justice, and prevention (the DCFOF mission).
As the Director of Marketing & Development, Kelly is excited to hit the ground running during the 40th anniversary of the agency and can’t wait to see what the next 40 years hold!
Kelly is married to her childhood sweetheart Clay and they have three children, a cat, a dog and a 3-legged red healer. During her rare down time, Kelly loves spending time with her family and friends, listening to music, laughing as much as possible and traveling as much as she can. Feel free to reach out and connect with Kelly as she would love to talk with you and find ways you can partner with DCFOF: firstname.lastname@example.org
