Kelly Walker, MBA

Interim President

Kelly Walker joined the Foundation in April 2015, most recently serving as senior director before being named interim president in July 2023. She has more than 20 years of experience in marketing, communications, and public relations from her previous roles in both commercial and non–profit industries. Previously serving in the health system’s marketing department, Kelly’s experience provides her with an intimate knowledge of Union’s services and the healthcare needs of Wabash Valley residents.

“During my eight years at the Foundation, I have witnessed the power of donations in their ability to improve lives in our community. It’s an honor to connect donors to our mission and advance health and wellness in the Wabash Valley.”

Kelly grew up just east of Indianapolis in New Palestine, Indiana, and spent much of her childhood watching the legend Larry Bird play for the Boston Celtics. That fandom led her to Bird’s alma mater, Indiana State University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism. Kelly also holds an MBA from Western Governors University. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Indiana Healthcare Marketing and Public Relations Society and is a member of the Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development, and the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy. Kelly and her husband, Kenny, live on the east side of Terre Haute with their three children. Most evenings and weekends, you can find their family at a local athletic event as their children are actively involved in multiple sports.
