Kelley Nolan, Site Coordinator
Lockerman Bundy Elementary School

“Hi! My name is Kelley Nolan. I am from Baltimore, Maryland and have lived here my entire life. I came to love music in my high school band class. I went on to college at Towson University where I studied nursing, and did nursing for two years afterwards. I then came back to music in the nonprofit world working for an organization called TheMarching Elite Foundation. One of my summer staffers introduced me to OrchKids and I loved the program! I applied, and here I am as the new Site Coordinator at Lockerman-Bundy Elementary School.”

Kelley joined our team in the beginning of our 16-17 School Year.
