Regional Director of Grants and Contracts, Eastern Portfolio

Ms. Kelly Lehner

Kelly Lehner recently joined The Geneva Foundation, and am honored to serve as the Regional Director of Grants & Contracts for the eastern region. “In this role, I lead a team dedicated to high quality service related to proposal development, submission, and research award administration. In addition, I collaborate with other Grants and Contracts directors to develop and execute departmental strategies which are in line with Geneva’s organizational priorities. I am a native of Baltimore and reside in Maryland in order to support Geneva’s eastern region portfolio of federal grants and contracts.

I bring to this position over 28 years of experience at Johns Hopkins University, most recently in the JHU School of Nursing where I held the position of Associate Dean for Finance and Administration. In this role, as with previously held positions at JHU such as the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, I managed pre- and post-award U.S. and global grants and contracts, most of which were funded by the federal government.

Having only been with Geneva for a few months, I am extremely impressed by its supportive leadership and outstanding staff. I find it an absolute privilege to be a member of Geneva’s team and its commitment to provide outstanding service to the military medical community. There is nothing more fulfilling than to know you’ve played a part in providing support for such amazing research to help those who serve our country. I look forward to the future!”
