“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Kelly Sandstrom has over thirteen years of experience in project management, IT and operations in the consulting and tech industries. She graduated from Indiana University Bloomington Kelley School of Business with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems, Business Process Management and Operations Management; and a minor in Math.
Kelly currently holds the Project Management Institute Project Management Professional (PMP) certification as well as the Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I), Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), and the CompTIA Project+.
Kelly is a Manager in the Project Management Office at Lev, a premier digital consultancy that connects brands to their customers using Salesforce products. Headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, Lev has offices in Phoenix, AZ; Indianapolis, IN; and remote employees across the United States and in the UK.
Prior to becoming the Secretary for Women & Hi Tech, she was an active member and volunteer, and in 2017 was honored to receive the inaugural Women & Hi Tech Volunteer of the Year award. Kelly also volunteers with Pass the Torch for Women Foundation, and is a board member for the Project Management Institute Central Indiana Chapter. In her free time, Kelly enjoys reading as many books as possible, riding her bike, exploring Indianapolis with her husband Scott, and spending time with her two adorable nieces as much as possible.
As a female who has been passionate about technology for her entire life, Kelly is also usually always the only woman in the room in most professional settings. A few years ago, she decided to seek out networking opportunities with other women who may also be used to experiencing the same thing, which led her to Women & Hi Tech.
Kelly’s goal as an officer of the board of directors for Women & Hi Tech is to promote the organization and increase awareness and membership. She looks forward to continuing to serve as an advocate for women and girls in STEM
