Kellie MacDonald-Evoy is a Clinical Assistant Professor and the MSW Admissions Coordinator for ASU’s School of Social Work. After graduating with her MSW degree from ASU with a concentration in Policy, Administration, and Community Practice, Kellie knew she wanted to focus her career in macro social work. Kellie has always been passionate about working to promote social, economic, and environmental justice and knows that while it can be challenging to advocate for public policy change, it is vital to ensure we as social workers do our part to create a more just society for those in our communities.
Prior to taking a position within ASU, Kellie worked in public policy and spent two years advocating for survivors of gender-based violence. This primarily involved lobbying for legislative changes that would provide additional protections to survivors of violence under state and federal law. Kellie also has experience in grassroots organizing, community outreach, fund development, social welfare policy research, and analysis.
In 2017, Kellie started working in the ASU Field Education Office where she worked with online MSW students to identify field placement opportunities. Then in 2019, Kellie began working as a Clinical Assistant Professor where she teaches macro social work classes at the graduate level. Kellie is also the MSW Admissions Coordinator where she oversees all aspects of the application process for those who have applied to any of the MSW programs.
Outside of work, Kellie has spent a great deal of time abroad enjoying the opportunities to immerse herself in other cultures. Kellie also loves spending time with her dogs and partner at their home in Phoenix Arizona.
