Doreen Fox Kelsey is a member of the Rotary Club of Albuquerque Del Sol and has been a Rotarian since 1996.  She served as a Rotary Club president in 1999-2000 and 2001-2002 for the Rotary Club of Spokane Hillyard, and most recently as president of the Rotary Club of Albuquerque Del Sol in 2015-2016.  Doreen’s Rotary passion is the Rotary Foundation – focusing on fund development and humanitarian service projects.  She served as District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair in Rotary District 5080 and was a frequent workshop leader for Pacific Northwest PETS serving multiple districts.  Doreen relocated to Albuquerque and District 5520 in 2012, where she served as an Assistant Governor prior to her nomination as District Governor 2017-2018.
In 2004, Doreen traveled as part of an International Service project team to Bangladesh, where she coordinated a project providing cataract surgery at a hospital founded by Rotarians from the U.S. and Bangladesh.  After returning home, she helped to start an endowment fund to provide for the ongoing operation of the hospital. Doreen traveled to Bangladesh four more times over an eight-year period primarily to assist the hospital but also to develop new service projects.  The most recent projects involved maternal and infant mortality reduction in rural southern Bangladesh and supporting primary and secondary education and nutritional support to children attending the Rangpur Rotary School in northern Bangladesh.
In her professional life, Doreen works as vice president and branch manager for Los Alamos National Bank in Albuquerque. Previously, she was a branch manager for US Bank, where she received US Bank’s most distinguished individual service award, the Circle of Service Excellence, in 2014.
Doreen and her husband Tony are Major Donors and Benefactors.  They have been married for more than 20 years, and they have six adult children. Doreen is a recipient of the Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service Award.
