After receiving his Master’s Degree in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education at Ball State University, Kellen served as a Residence Hall Director at the University of New Hampshire for four years before joining Disability Services at CU in 2017. Starting as a Program Manager, Kellen transitioned into the Assistant Director role of the Student Testing Center (STC) in 2020. Kellen’s professional interests include accessible technology and software, learning and catering to new adaptive endeavors, and helping individuals learn more about disabilities as they relate to testing accommodations. Growing up in a small northwestern Michigan town of 400 people, Kellen has a passion for advocating for first generation students and helping those who may not have had the privilege to explore multiple learning styles in a K-12 setting.
Kellen is an avid runner who enjoys running half marathons, spending time with his wife and daughter, reading, and attempting to play quietly with his corgis. You’ll find him every Sunday glued to the television watching the Denver Broncos.
