Kelly Amsler

Having dabbled in fields of social justice during college, Kelly Amsler launched this lifelong passion by spending nine months at an orphanage in South Sudan, aiding with educational/medical/administrative needs, and developing a running water system on the orphanage compound. Since then she’s pursued her belief that education begets opportunity and has worked with at-risk student-athletes at UCLA, University of Miami, and is now entering her third year as a learning specialist at the University of Arizona. Outside interests include hiking and teaching self-defense classes (Krav Maga). She is drawn to the MDP program in order to be better equipped to foster educational pursuits among underserved or unmotivated populations.
