Former CLLAS student employee now working for FEMA

Kelsey Madsen, (Master of Public Administration, UO, 2018) former employee/intern at CLLAS, has recently accepted a position with FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) as a Program Delivery Manager within the Public Assistance Program.

Part of her new position will be helping our local community through the grant process in response to February’s snow storm.

After this local grant process, Kelsey will be moved to the next federally-declared disaster to help other communities through their post-disaster phase. She is very happy to have worked with CLLAS through her graduate degree in the PPPM Department because she feels as though the experience directly prepared her for this new position interacting with the local community while administering grants.
