Stephanie M. Kelley
Stephanie M. Kelley is East Cooper Community Outreach’s fifth executive director in the organization’s 33-year history. She assumed this role in March of 2017 after volunteering at ECCO in a multitude of roles including service on the Board of Directors. The most satisfying part of her role at ECCO is working with the organization’s stakeholders – clients, volunteers, staff, donors and partners – to ensure ECCO continues to be an anchor in the community.
Prior to her role at ECCO, Stephanie spent 25 years working as Student Affairs professional in higher education. Her last position was that of Dean of Students at Columiba College in Columbia, SC. Stephanie considers it a blessing to be involved in ECCO’s on-going impact in the Lowcountry as she advocates for the needs of her neighbors living in both generational and situational poverty.
