Prior to beginning her consulting career in 2018, Kelly spent 15 years at the USEPA Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics serving as technical expert on the use of predictive models to assess environmental fate, hazard, and exposure concerns for industrial chemicals. Kelly managed the development of numerous USEPA predictive tools and administered the Sustainable Futures training program to educate stakeholders on the new chemical review process under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and screening level risk assessment approaches. She participated in numerous international activities within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and served as the US representative on the OECD QSAR Toolbox Workgroup. In 2015, Kelly became an Associate Branch Chief at USEPA focusing on prenotice communications with industry, scientific assessments for new chemicals and supporting final determinations and regulatory actions on new and existing chemicals under TSCA. In her consulting work she supports clients with regulatory strategies for introduction of new industrial chemicals in North America and development of safer chemistries by using predictive models to incorporate hazard, exposure and risk considerations early in the research and development stage.
