Kelly Vo
Breast Cancer Survivor, Co-Founder/Vice President of The Pink Ribbon Army


Kelly Vo wears many hats: loving wife, attentive daughter, proudest auntie, loyal friend, and doting dog mom. With over 20 years in the digital media industry, she thrives as a Lead Client Partner at Microsoft. But her story goes beyond professional success-it's one of courage, determination, and community impact.

In 2021, at the young age of 40, Kelly faced a breast cancer diagnosis. Rather than succumbing to fear, she transformed adversity into action. With unwavering motivation and the support of her husband, sisters, and close friends, she co-founded The Pink Ribbon Army-a non-profit dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer fighters in need of financial assistance.

Originally hailing from northern California, Kelly graduated from Washington State University in 2002. Her career blossomed in Seattle's vibrant tech hub, where she not only found professional fulfillment but also personal joy, meeting her soulmate, Danny, during her first role in digital media sales. Together, they navigate life's adventures with their spirited mini dachshunds, Joie and Arden.

Outside the boardroom, Kelly is a 13-year (and counting!) Ironman triathlete, so there is a good chance you'll find her swimming, biking, or running on any given day as she always has her eye on the next big race. Despite her demanding job and time-intensive hobby, she prioritizes quality moments with loved ones over all else. Her battle with cancer reinforced a vital life lesson; that life itself can change in a single moment, so there is simply no moment to waste. Now cancer-
free, Kelly continues to live by this guiding principle.

Kelly is honored and humbled to be this year's Keynote Speaker at Northwest Hope & Healing's annual marquee fundraising event, Life in Color. Her competitive spirit fuels her hope that this year's event will be the most successful yet!
