What People are Saying
“Kelly O’Keefe is an assest to the SCV …”
Kelly O’Keefe is an asset to the SCV and has been an integral part of the Princess Cruises Community Service Team which strives to improve the communities in which we live and work. We would not be able to impact the people of our community as much as we do without the dedication of Kelly and her leadership. Her positivity and enthusiasm is apparent in every project she is involved with and I am fortunate to be able to work with her.
– Debbie Holbrook, Princess Cruises
“What impresses me most about Kelly is her drive…”
Kelly O’Keefe is an integral part of the Princess Cruises Community Service Team which strives to improve the communities in which we live and work. She has been an active part of the committee leading many initiatives for multiple years. This honoree introduced Princess Cruises to the local nonprofit Family Promise of SCV which resulted in a campus-wide drive for the organization including attaining the attention of local media for Princess Cruises. She led princess cruises’ first company-wide Graffiti Removal Volunteer Day in conjunction with the City of Santa Clarita, where princess employees were able to roll up their sleeves and volunteer to help beautify our great city.
Her involvement on behalf of Princess Cruises reaches many organizations in our valley including the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, Child and Family Center and Avenues SLS. She also continues to give back outside of Princess and coordinated a successful inaugural Poker Tournament and is currently planning an inaugural Poker Golf Tournament directly for Family Promise of SCV.

Where It All Began
As an Enneagram Type Three who loves work, I take pleasure in checking items off the to-do list. I often put tasks before people and forgoing fellowship with others. I’ve struggled to feel rooted in community and longed for a sense of belonging, connection, and unity.
However, I always find myself in community based situations. Which is probably because I’m ambitious, energetic, and love bringing people together. The challenge is, I just want to go hide in the bathroom once I bring everyone together.
I was selected as one of Santa Clarita’s Forty under 40 award winners for 2019. I represented the largest employer in Santa Clarita, Princess Cruises, at various nonprofit events. In my free time I plan and coordinate fundraising events for local non-profit organizations.
I can be seen driving around town signing and dancing in my car with my two young daughters. I love the idea of community and that we are better together, but sometimes community is messy because we are messy. I’ve had my fair share of mess ups and mistakes and I’m here to tell you living connected in community isn’t always easy but it’s worth it!
“Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
