Gioia Kelleher

Administrative Coordinator (New York)

Starting first as an intern, Gioia joined the Seeds of Peace staff in April 2018 as the Administrative Coordinator. She is honored to be a part of an organization that encourages individuals across lines of conflict to show up, imagine, and work towards something better.

Gioia is a graduate of the University of Richmond where she studied International Relations. Before working at Seeds of Peace, Gioia interned with grassroots campaigns focused on migrant rights and access to education. During this time, Gioia saw and experienced the importance of supportive and honest discourse and connection.

“Seeds of Peace provides the tools and space to sit with those who disagree with us and challenge our own set attitudes and perceptions. Such pursuits are necessary in a time when people hijack discourse to construct their own realities and influence others’.”
