Kelsey Behringer

Chief Operating Officer


Chicago Area

During my four years in the classroom as a high school chemistry & physics teacher, I found myself using technology daily to captivate my reluctant students. Turns out teenagers don't love science... who knew? Looking to widen the scope of my impact on education and help other educators see technology as a superpower, I joined Packback in 2017 as an Experience Manager. Fueled by Packback’s mission and a deep love of solving problems, I quickly became the Director of the very team I began my Packback career on and then stepped into the Chief Operating Officer role in November 2022. When not working, you can find me in my kitchen refusing to use a written recipe or on the Lake Michigan path with my rescue pup, Missy Elliot.
