Kelly Helm

Executive Director, Patient Engagement

Kelly serves as NephCure’s Executive Director of Patient Engagement, working directly with NephCure’s regional communities, volunteers and patients. She started with NephCure as a volunteer walk leader in 2010 after her daughter, Macy, was diagnosed with FSGS. After working as a regional coordinator for several years, she was promoted to a full-time employee in 2014.

As a patient parent, Kelly has had 12 years of hands-on experience with the patient journey. She’s also spent the last eight years advocating for patient families, helping them make their voices heard, and moving the needle forward toward better treatments. Her favorite part of working for NephCure is providing hope for patients and their families and helping them feel less alone.

Kelly works from her home office in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Brandon, her children, Macy and Max, and her dogs, Bentley, Finn and Dash.
