Kelley started Seaport Search Partners because she loves working with software companies to help them find the best people to join their growing teams. She also genuinely enjoys meeting new people and helping them take that key next step in their careers. Originally from the Boston area, Kelley got her first taste of Start-up life when she joined H.Bloom, a subscription floral company in NYC. She relocated to San Francisco with H.Bloom which is where she eventually broke into the recruiting industry with Betts Recruiting.  At Betts, Kelley ran searches for entry through director level sales professionals for some of the fastest growing companies in the Bay Area including SurveyMonkey, NewRelic, Meraki and Zenefits, to name a few. 

Since moving back to Boston in 2015 Kelley has continued to work with software companies to scale their teams by developing strong relationships with both clients and candidates as well as developing an in depth understand of the hiring landscapes across the software industry.

Kelley is a graduate of Tabor Academy and Trinity College.  Happy to be back on the east coast she enjoys skiing, Boston sports, beach days, live music and hiking with her husband Rich and dog Levy.  The Bay Area will always have a special place in her heart.
