Kelseagh Budris

As a Project Associate with McKinley Advisors, Kelseagh supports the consulting team in project management, logistical coordination and research integration to ensure that clients receive the best possible experience when working with our team. As a member of the consulting team, Kelseagh works collaboratively to meet the unique needs of associations of all stripes so that they may better serve their constituents.

Prior to joining McKinley, Kelseagh worked on the branch relations team at the American Association of University Women, where she supported the recruitment, retention and engagement efforts of the membership department. It was here that Kelseagh developed her interest in the distinct needs and challenges of associations. Kelseagh’s background in associations better allows her to understand the diverse pressures that clients face in their specific markets, informing her ability to work to through these questions with the individualized mission of the association in mind.

Originally from Concord, MA, (aka the birthplace of the American Revolution) Kelseagh is a lover of US history and all things outdoors. She earned an interdisciplinary degree in communications, legal institutions, economics & government (CLEG) from American University, where she graduated cum laude in 2016. Since moving to DC, Kelseagh has come to appreciate the many outdoor activities that the district has to offer. Whether biking along the Capital Crescent trail, navigating the many paths of Rock Creek Park or paddle-boarding on the Potomac, Kelseagh is never one to waste a sunny day in DC.
