Elaine Kay

Director of Rally Nashville

Elaine Kay is the Director of Rally Nashville and keeps us laughing constantly. She is full of passion, vision and loves to share the “Rally Bug” with everyone she meets! Elaine’s passion for Rally’s mission began soon after experiencing childhood cancer firsthand through her son, James. When James was 11 years old, he was the 27th person in the world history to be diagnosed with a PNET Ewing’s Sarcoma originating in the kidney. Thankfully, James is now a healthy Auburn University graduate. Elaine earned her undergraduate degree from Ole Miss and her master’s from Vanderbilt. She is very involved with the 100-year-old Kiwanis Club of Nashville, a service club that has also helped with various Rally Nashville events. Elaine and her husband enjoy traveling to visit both James, an Auburn graduate, and their daughter Caroline, who is a graduate of University of Virginia and is a traveling pediatric oncology nurse.
