Meet The Speakers

Kellie Persson
Kellie Persson
Senior Software Engineer at Procore Technologies

Along the sunny coast of Southern California, Kellie Persson works as a senior engineer for Procore Technologies’ mobile team. Growing up as a “military brat”, Kellie moved often and learned that change was a normal part of life. After moving across the country, Kellie finally found herself at “home” while attending Spelman College. Although her early years helped her adapt to change, it was Spelman that prepared her to be a change agent. As a woman of color in the world of STEM, Kellie looks for opportunities to leave a positive footprint behind.

Nicole Felter (she/her/ella)
Associate Marketing Manager at PowerToFly

My name is Nicole Felter and I am a graduate from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh. I am originally from a very small town in New York State called Kerhonkson. Being from a small town with limited opportunities, I never imagined that I would have accomplished all that I have to this day. Being one of the only people in my family to pursuit a college degree has demonstrated the importance of positivity and perseverance.

Through the different organizations I have been a part of and the different things I have experienced in my college career I have gained multiple valuable skills. Speaking Spanish is the most important skill I learned while studying abroad and I am proud to say I am fluent. Event planning, team work, fundraising, marketing and work delegation are skills that have carried me through the execution of various successful philanthropy events. These skills have ultimately shaped me into a leader who embodies enthusiasm, optimism, fervor, drive and ambition.
