Kel Moody

Kellen (Kel) Moody is a community cultivator and placemaker. As the founder of Alluvium Gatherings, they create and uplift movements through the design, planning, and implementation of gatherings. They have a passion for convening communities and leading teams to create meaningful experiences. Through their deep networks of relationships across the bioregion, they have led dozens of small- and large-scale events including the week-long virtual Festival of What Works hosted by Salmon Nation Trust. They have also worked in and around the Certified B Corp community, using business as a force for good, since 2016. They serve on both the B Proud Leadership Team and Oregon Pride In Business board based out of Portland, Oregon. Kel deeply believes that developing a strong sense of place is one of the most meaningful pathways to purpose and that gatherings have the power to motivate collective impact to drive real and meaningful change. They currently live in the traditional territory of the Cowlitz and Chinook Nations, or what is now called Vancouver, WA, with their wife and toddler, taking moments to retreat to the forest and rivers as often as possible.
