Crestview Hills, KY; February 21, 2008 –Toyota Motor Corporation has named Kelly A. Schoening, a partner with the law firm of Deters, Benzinger & LaVelle (DBL), as a 2008 Outstanding Woman of Northern Kentucky.
The Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky Awards, established in 1984, honor women serving the Northern Kentucky community who exemplify notable achievement, service to their profession or community, and the qualities of integrity, perseverance, and leadership.
“Kelly established herself among clients, colleagues and the general public as not only an excellent lawyer but also one of the preeminent employment attorneys in Greater Cincinnati. Her intelligence, judgment and guidance are a constant gift to those she encounters on a daily basis” said Bob Hoffer, DBL partner and head of the employment and labor group.
In addition to her work at DBL, Kelly has been extensively involved in her community, serving on the Board of Directors for the Welcome House of Northern Kentucky for six years and participating in Leadership Northern Kentucky where she was elected class president and project chair. She serves on the Board of Directors and Personnel Committee for the Diocesan Catholic Children’s Home and donates countless hours to the Northern Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management as their legislative chair.
Kelly received the Outstanding Recent Alumnus Award from Chase Alumni Association in 2006 and was also named by the Cincinnati Enquirer as one of the Women to Watch that same year.
Kelly has a strong commitment to her husband Nick and her two children, providing coaching for their athletic teams and assisting with Girl Scout activities. “Despite working full-time and being heavily involved in community activities, Kelly finds time to be a great mom and wife. Kelly has an innate sense that the most important responsibilities she has in her life are to her family,” shared Hoffer.
Kelly will be presented the award on April 7 at the NKY METS Center.
