Meet Andrea Kelly

Paralegal Specialist, Office of the General Counsel

My time at the FTC has been invaluable.

I joined the FTC’s paralegal program in September 2011 as a recent graduate from Providence College. As a young professional just entering the workforce, I was excited for the opportunity to gain experience in the legal field and to work for an agency devoted to protecting consumer welfare.

During my three years at the Commission, I’ve received constant support from my supervisors, who have remained invested in my personal and professional development. As a result, I now have an in-depth understanding of the wide variety of industries under the FTC’s jurisdiction and have greatly improved my writing and analytic abilities. Overall, my time at the FTC has been invaluable and I would strongly recommend the agency’s paralegal program to any young professional.
