Kelly Hendershot, LMSW, LSW
Senior Director, Program
Kelly Hendershot is the lead liaison for patient and family programming across CSC’s growing network of Affiliates and Health Care Partners. She ensures that programming is effectively implemented throughout the network and meets the quality standards that are a part of CSC’s 40-year tradition as a relentless ally for patients.
Prior to joining CSC, Kelly was the Program Director for Gilda’s Club Quad Cities. Kelly was integral to the success of her affiliate and wore many different hats during her tenure there. From Associate Board President to intern, facilitator, manager and then director, Kelly applied her skills and expertise throughout the organization.
“What began as a need for support through my husband’s cancer diagnosis and death, grew into a strong passion of ensuring that others never have to face cancer alone,” Kelly said.
Kelly holds a Bachelor of Arts from Saint Mary’s University and a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) as well as a certification in web design. She is also a Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga™ (LVCY) certified instructor and a yoga 4 cancer (y4c) trained instructor.
Kelly and her dog Gabby are looking forward to relocating to the Washington DC area in September.
