Anne Kelley - Pasadena, CA

Anne Kelley

I am honored to serve on the 2016-18 National Christ Child Board as its Immediate Past President, Communications Chair and Member of the Canonization Advisory Board.  Prior to my 2014-16 term as President I served three additional terms on the NCCS Board and led NCCS’ strategic planning efforts for the plan in execution from 2011-16.  I have been a member of the Pasadena Chapter since 1992, where my mother, grandmother and sister have all been members.  I am a founding member of the new Monterey Bay Chapter, currently in formation. 

I retired in the fall of 2014 from the Microsoft Corporation where I served as an Associate General Counsel and General Manager in the company's Legal and Corporate Affairs department with responsibilities over time for anti-piracy, patent-licensing, anti-corruption, and supply chain functions.  In addition, I led the company's international pro bono efforts and represented Microsoft with regard to issues around the rule of law in the global marketplace with various NGOs and governments.  My 20 years at Microsoft, which encouraged employee volunteer efforts and matched financial contributions to non-profits, were a great springboard for a retirement focused on volunteering, and in particular, Christ Child.  As a professional matter, I now serve occasionally as a Special Advisor to the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade (CREATe), which helps companies improve their abilities to combat corruption, trade secret theft and cyber threats.

 I am a member of the Board of Governors of the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, California, where I attended law school.  I am also a National Association of Pastoral Musicians certified cantor and cantor and sing with the St. Angela Merici Choir in Pacific Grove, California, where I call home.   When I am not traveling the world to see family or to meet with other Christ Child members, I enjoy spending time outdoors walking and cycling and indoors cooking, crafting, sewing and reading.
