Each year at Acquia Engage, we highlight the unique perspectives of today’s digital leaders and encourage our attendees to find motivation beyond their own companies. At Acquia Engage New Orleans, we’re continuing this tradition of showcasing world-renowned champions and inspiring storytellers.
We’re happy to announce Kelley O’Hara as our Engage New Orleans keynote speaker! Kelley plays defender for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team and Utah Royals FC and is both a two-time World Cup Champion and a 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist.
At just 30 years old, Kelley has already celebrated pinnacle achievements at every level of soccer. Kelley made her first appearance for the U.S. Women’s National Team against Mexico in 2010. Her skill earned her a spot on the roster for the London 2012 Olympic Games where Team USA took home the gold medal. After being asked to switch positions from forward to defender, Kelley played every minute of every match in the 2012 Olympics – a total of 570 minutes of soccer played across six matches. In 2015, Kelley and the U.S. Women’s National Team followed their gold medal by winning the FIFA World Cup. Kelley defined herself in that tournament by showcasing her versatility and by scoring the dramatic game-clinching goal against Germany in the semi-finals. And in 2019, Kelley was again instrumental in clinching victory for the U.S. Women's National Team at the FIFA Women's World Cup. Her impressive track record and determination to succeed make Kelley the perfect choice to inspire today’s digital leaders to be champions in their own industries. Anyone who hears Kelley’s presentation is guaranteed to come away motivated to meet their goals!
