A heart for non-profit work

A heart for non-profit work

In working for a non-profit, Kelly Anne Ohde ’06 says she often wears many diverse hats. In the scope of her position as micro enterprise and marketing manager for Easter Seals, she works hands-on with individuals with autism and other disabilities — helping clients with job skills and vocational training and helping them to foster independence. At other times, her bachelor’s degree in public relations and electronic publishing (and master’s degree in public relations and advertising) come in handy. “I do marketing for Easter Seals, which means anything; it really ranges,” she said, listing her responsibility areas: website work, social media, news releases, event planning, community outreach awareness, brochure production, logo designing, and fundraising activities from galas to golf outings. Additionally, the “micro enterprise” portion of her job involves managing a small business, HarrysButtons of the Chicago area, which supports employment for individuals with autism and other disabilities. Ohde has been with Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago full-time for five years and part-time for 10 years. “The organization I work for has a pretty large footprint – helping 30,000 people with disabilities. Autism happens to be my concentration,” Ohde said. HarrysButtons was donated to Easter Seals by a family who has a son with autism. The family started the business in the basement of their home in 2004. HarrysButtons now has two locations, Tinley Park and Chicago, with plans to expand to Rockford, Ill. It currently employs roughly 50 individuals with autism and other disabilities. “We do everything from creating buttons (for small orders like birthday parties to large orders of 30,000 buttons). We also create our own products and...
