Kelly Anderson
Workplace Possibilities Manager

Kelly Anderson has always been one to do things with others in mind — her idea of relaxing after a long day at work is to cross-stitch gifts for family, friends and co-workers. Her caring nature transfers over to her professional life, too. Working as a registered nurse for over 30 years in oncology and in the operating room, Kelly’s contribution and commitment to her field doesn’t go unnoticed.

Eventually leaving the patient care side of things, Kelly came to The Standard as a nurse case manager supporting the short- and long-term disability teams. She transitioned to working as a Workplace Possibilities℠ coordinator and medical lead in 2011, supporting numerous clients across the country. In her current role as a manager of the Workplace Possibilities program, she oversees the Workplace Possibilities coordinators, contributes to various groups and uses her insights in the medical field to provide top-notch support to her team. She enjoys the collaborative nature of her current role and loves being in contact with clients and coordinators alike.

Kelly dedicates her free time to caring for her two cats and tending to her flower garden. She likes to stay active by playing tennis, and brings her energy and enthusiasm to endeavors on and off the court.
