Miss Massachusetts USA 2019
Kelly O’Grady is a 27-year-old from Duxbury, Massachusetts who now resides in Boston. After fifteen years of competitive figure skating at the highest levels across Massachusetts and beyond, including guest starring in the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting in New York City, Kelly enrolled at Harvard University for her undergraduate degree. At Harvard, Kelly concentrated in Social Studies and East Asian Studies and was President of both Harvard Women in Business and Harvard Undergraduate Television. After graduating with honors in 2013, she pursued her passion for the media and entertainment industry and rose quickly through the ranks at The Walt Disney Company, where she worked on several large acquisition deals and strategic company initiatives before deciding to return to school for her graduate degree. Following Disney, Kelly earned her MBA from Harvard Business School. Most recently, she began working as a management consultant in the Boston area, where she advises CEOs and top industry managers across a wide range of business challenges and strategic initiatives.
In her spare time, Kelly enjoys volunteering with Boston GLOW and the Jimmy Fund, as well as watching any Boston sports game she can catch! Kelly is extremely honored to be Miss Massachusetts USA 2019 and plans to spend the year promoting her passion for female empowerment. As a woman who will not let stereotypes define her, Kelly advocates that women should not feel compelled to change themselves to fit society’s definition of success – they can be strong and intelligent leaders while also embracing their femininity and the incredible power that comes with being a woman. Partnering with a range of like-minded initiatives celebrating female empowerment, Kelly hopes to advance this mission forward and inspire young women to highlight their complexities and be their authentic selves.
