DEV 10


 Kelly Calendine joined the BTC board in 2024. She believes one of humanity’s most noble pursuits is to support others to live a meaningful life. BTC’s mission closely aligns with this focus. She joins the organization excited to support our community’s under-represented students and the next generation of teachers in achieving their goals.

Kelly’s 15+ year career has been dedicated to a variety of IT roles. She is currently a Client Director at Dev10 where she enables individuals from diverse backgrounds to launch careers in tech. Prior to Dev10, she spent years as an IT program/change management consultant at various corporations (Target, UHG, Best Buy) and digital agencies. The common thread through all her career experiences has been working with people to drive positive change.

Kelly and her husband were born and raised in Minnesota, and share two children. The family enjoys spending time together and taking trips up north for fun at the lake. In her free time she enjoys biking, running and gardening.
