Morgan Kelly, Project Management Associate (MAPS PBC)

Morgan earned a B.A. in psychology in 2012 from the St. Edward’s University and a M.A. in psychological research in 2016 from the Texas State University. Her research mainly focused on substance use issues. Prior to joining MAPS Public Benefit Corporation (MAPS PBC), Morgan worked in academic research for over four years, most recently as a scientific assistant on a clinical trial examining the efficacy of contingency management to treat alcohol use disorder (AUD) in individuals with co-occurring AUD and serious mental illness in a community mental health setting.
At MAPS PBC, Morgan is currently serving as a clinical study assistant with the IDEA team and will be mainly working on Expanded Access programs and Investigator Initiated Trials. Morgan is passionate about reducing health disparities and increasing accessibility to holistic treatment approaches for substance use dependence and PTSD, including MDMA-assisted therapy! She is committed to expanding the scope of psychedelic medical research to help make this treatment option available to all those individuals who would benefit from it.
In Morgan’s free time, she enjoys cooking and baking, strength training, yoga, and hiking in the PNW, listening to podcasts, and spending quality time snuggling up with her partner, Luke, and her cat-dog-pig, Wuzi (a shih tzu mix). When it’s safe, she’ll get back to traveling as much as possible and indoor rock climbing too!
