GREENFIELD — Kelli Barry has joined Baystate Franklin Medical Center as a philanthropy officer with the Baystate Health Foundation. She brings a variety of fundraising experiences to her new role, most recently as the vice president of development for Easter Seals Massachusetts, where she oversaw special events, foundation grants, and giving campaigns.

Barry spent fourteen years with the American Cancer Society, including as the national Director for Mission Integration for the Relay For Life.
