Kelsey McKay


Kelsey McKay was a prosecutor in Travis County, Texas for twelve years. For six years, she exclusively prosecuted strangulation related crimes ranging from sexual assault to capital murder. She has worked to strengthen how communities collaborate, investigate, treat, and prosecute strangulation and intimate partner cases. She works to develop medical and non-medical experts in the community to testify to a jury regarding evidence in strangulation and family violence cases. She works with law enforcement to create and implement the use of a Strangulation Supplement, transforming the role of first responders to be more investigative by carrying her knowledge and needs as a prosecutor into the field on every case. She trains and consults nationally for communities working towards similar implementation.
