Meet the Team

Name: Kelli Hanson
Location: Seattle
Role: Political Manager
Insider Info: Kelly moved to Seattle from Montana to attend University of Washington. She graduated with a degree in European Studies with a focus on Russia. When she's not at The Borgen Project, she works at a German restaurant/bar. In the future, she would like to get a Masters in Political Science.
Why I'm a part of it: "According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, ' leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.' I believe The Borgen Project has the potential to make more than one life easier by giving a voice to those in need. Not only does the Project work with congressional leaders, but it also mobilizes people who normally wouldn't be engaged in the issues."
