Mod of the Month – April 2022

Our latest Mod of the Month views her work as a way to better the world, by creating healthier online communities and protecting vulnerable members of that community from bad actors. This defender of all things virtual is Kelly G., a ModSquad veteran and two-time Mod of the Month honoree!

The first thing you might hear about Kelly, when asking her fellow Mods, is that she is a HUGE Post Malone fan (along with Gunship and Pink Floyd). The second? Her card collection, which includes everything from baseball cards, Pokemon cards. Her favorite? The Post Malone fan card, of course.

Mod of the Month

Kelly lives with her partner and her partner’s son. He is one of her biggest heroes. “He is autistic, but that hasn’t stopped him from living and loving life. I’ve learned a lot about life from him. How differences can bring us together and shouldn’t define us.” 

In fact, it’s this exact thought that defines Kelly. Her life motto, aptly taken from the song When You Grow Up, Your Heart Dies, by Gunship, is “Expect nothing, appreciate everything.” She goes on to say “I just want people to love each other. That’s why I love my job. It’s my way of making the world a better place.” 

Kelly first joined ModSquad back in 2014, and has gained a reputation for her dedication, integrity and excellence to the job, and of course the communities that she moderates. In fact, Kelly goes as far to say “If you have a job, take it seriously. Give it the best of your ability. If you don’t have integrity with what you’re doing, then what are you doing?” 

And it’s this work ethic that has earned Kelly her second Mod of the Month recognition. 

“Kelly has always gone above and beyond for our project, even helping our client to develop a brand new moderation strategy several years into our relationship with them. Our clients count on her for second opinions, expert advice, and testing new features or ideas. She is the master of “yes and”, a key figure in our brainstorming sessions, and just a joy to work with. We have gotten so many shout outs from our client for her specifically and she deserves all the recognition in the world!” – Geneva H.

“She’s such a positive & hardworking part of our team I don’t know what we’d do without her.” – Liz A.

“Kelly is one of the most important pillars of the project. She’s an excellent Mod.” – Stephany S.

“She gives 110% to help her fellow Mods! Many of the procedures that we have in place were invented or inspired by her ideas. Our client adores her and often comes right to her to ask for ideas or information. We are extremely lucky to have her on our team. She truly embodies what ModSquad is about.” – Patty O.

“Kelly is very personable and helpful. We hit the jackpot when she joined our team!” – Twila S.

Finally, we asked Kelly a few short fire questions:
