Annalee Kelly

Principal Survey Researcher

Annalee Kelly has extensive experience in conducting and leading survey research for numerous early childhood education and school nutrition studies. Her expertise includes recruiting sites, testing and revising assessment instruments, training field interviewers, and conducting quality assurance site visits. 

Kelly is currently directing the survey efforts of an ongoing, longitudinal study of Head Start program quality and child outcomes. She has also worked on several studies involving the examination of National School Lunch Program (NSLP)/School Breakfast Program (SBP) eligibility requirements, benefits, and dietary quality. For example, she directed district data collection efforts for an evaluation of NSLP and SBP demonstrations to directly certify children receiving Medicaid benefits. Her recent work also includes directing the field data collection efforts of a study to evaluate the effectiveness of four evidence-based home visiting programs at improving maternal and infant health and well-being. For this study, she directed efforts to gather data from up to 5,100 expectant and new mothers interested in enrolling in home visiting services in 85 sites across 12 states. 

Prior to joining Mathematica, Kelly held positions at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research and the Paterson Education Fund. She has a M.Ed. in learning, cognition and development from Rutgers University.
