Kolby has joined the Vantage in Philanthropy team as an Associate Consultant. She will be assisting with grant applications, annual appeals, capital campaigns, research and more. Kolby’s passion for fundraising blossomed at a young age. In 1979, her grandfather Tim started a telethon to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The telethon is recognized as the longest consecutively running local telethon for the hospital in the country, raising over $1.5 million dollars (and counting!) over the years. This community event generated Kolby’s love and passion for fundraising.
Kolby graduated from Sacred Heart University in 2021 with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. In 2023, Kolby graduated as a Master of Public Administration, also from Sacred Heart University. In her free time, she enjoys CrossFit and being active, traveling, reading, and spending time with her dog, little sister, younger cousins, and her whole family.
Kolby resides in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut.
