Kelsey Carr Named Woman on the Rise by Albany Business Review

Each year, the Albany Business Review celebrates Women in Leadership Honorees in two categories – Women Who Mean Business and Women on the Rise. Women Who Mean Business honors women who are established leaders making an impact in the Capital Region’s business community. Women on the Rise celebrates women leading the way for the next generation with their outstanding contributions to the Albany region business community.

Among this year’s Women on the Rise honorees is Kelsey Carr, Senior Civil Engineer in LaBella’s Albany office. Kelsey is a strong community advocate, applying her passion for affordable housing, urban redevelopment/infill, historic preservation, and sustainable and climate-resilient design to uplift the Capital Region. She has also woven her volunteer work into her career, supporting organizations like Concerned for the Hungry, Habitat for Humanity, the Albany Riverfront Collaborative, and Capital Region CANstruction. Kelsey’s early experience overcoming lack of confidence shaped her eagerness to mentor and inspire the next generation of women engineers.
