With Viewpoint since 2013, Kelsey is the Managing Director at Viewpoint Research. In her role, Kelsey oversees the team and the centre’s activities, and specializes in strategic facilitation, leadership performance, and client management, with published work in the areas of organizational and leadership behaviour. Within the larger Viewpoint Group family office, Kelsey works closely with Mac Van Wielingen in various capacities, and is primarily responsible for managing the Foundation’s commitment to educating the public about ethical leadership, largely through its endowment to the Canadian Centre for Advanced Leadership at the Haskayne School of Business.
Prior to settling in Calgary, she obtained a Bachelor of Commerce with Honours from the University of Saskatchewan, while competing with the University’s Women's Hockey team. Kelsey also obtained a Masters of Science in Management, Organization Behavior from Queen's University under the supervision of Dr. Julian Barling. While there, she also helped coached the Women's Gaels Hockey team to an OUA Championship.
With a background in hockey, Kelsey's business interests have always been fueled by her fascination with teams and sport, particularly the parallels between the two. She has an inherent interest in how organizations can leverage fundamentals critical to athletic excellence and performance; such as the tight feedback loops; the coordination and vulnerability of great teams; and the incredible learning velocity and mindset of top performers. Kelsey's lifelong passion for hockey has also influenced community interests related to youth sport, including volunteering as a coach for over ten years.
Kelsey and her husband Chris are proud Saskatchewan natives, and with their daughter, enjoy spending time outdoors, sports, traveling, cooking Italian, and spending time with friends and family.
