Kelly Greene

Chief Operations Officer

After graduating from a small rural school in western New York and joining the United States Army, Kelly Greene learned quickly to adapt to her surroundings to be successful. She graduated from Basic Training named Soldier Leader of her cycle and Advanced Individual Training as Honor Graduate. Over the next 20 years, she traveled the world with the military and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.

While stationed in Misawa, Japan, Kelly fell in love with learning about cultures around the world. Even as a deployed Soldier during Operation Iraqi Freedom for two tours, she found opportunities to connect with the local children to form the Victory Base Council Girl Guides/Scouts with her fellow servicemen.  In 2013, she was deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and traveled the country by air. She had the opportunity to utilize the most advanced technologies available to the tactical HUMINT operations in theater.

Upon return from combat, Kelly retired with 20+ years of service and began teaching 6th grade Math.  After being selected as Westside Impact Teacher of the Year, she was asked to teach a new class on campus – 7th grade STEM!  Combining her love of learning with endless enthusiasm and strong classroom management, Kelly was able to design curriculum based on the Engineering Design Process for over 150 7th graders. Now, as the CSO International Director of Student Success for the rapidly expanding Chief Science Officers Program her goal is to push students just a bit outside of their comfort zone so they can see for themselves the power of their own ideas.

As the Chief Operations Officer for SciTech Institute, Kelly is focused on process development and systems integration through the implementation of the Entrepreneurial Operating System. Connect with Kelly to discuss opportunities to engage with the team and programs!
