ACCESS welcomes Kellie Battaglia as the new Development Director for the organization. Battaglia joins ACCESS with 19 years of experience in organizational leadership, resource and business development, innovation, personal and performance management, program development, budget management and stakeholder relations.
“We couldn’t be more happy to have found the high-energy, experienced, leading- edge professional we were looking for in Kellie Battaglia,” says ACCESS Executive Officer Pamela Norr.
Battaglia will be responsible for individual major gift fund raising and related activity on behalf of ACCESS. She will have responsibility for identifying, cultivating and soliciting major gift prospects, as well as developing a fund-raising planning
