Kelly Pearson, Chair

Kelly is the Director of Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program where she works with community members, national partners, and local event organizers throughout central, eastern, and northern Maine to raise funds and awareness for Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Children’s Services.

A native of New York, Kelly holds a Bachelor’s degree from Rochester Institute of Technology and a Master’s Degree from Syracuse University. She has lived in the Bangor area for more than 10 years, but she credits her BRLI experience with helping her realize that she can have roots and wings. “New York may always be home because of family, but BRLI opened my eyes to so much more that Bangor has to offer. I grew personally and professionally through the experience, and I met life-long friends that I otherwise wouldn’t have met. It was really the first time that I felt like I fit in since moving here.”

Kelly is a proud graduate of BRLI’s Class of 2014 and she currently serves on the BRLI Steering Committee as Vice Chair.

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
