Kelsey McKay trains and consults nationally for communities to implement protocol in various fields including intimate partner violence, child abuse, sexual assault, the use of expert witnesses, translating trauma and other complex topics. She was a prosecutor in Travis County, Texas for twelve years. For six years she exclusively prosecuted strangulation related crimes ranging from assault, sexual assault to capital murder. She has developed and implemented protocol for strangulation and domestic violence response and treatment. To that end she has strengthened 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 the evidence in strangulation, trauma related crime and family violence cases. She works with law enforcement to develop protocol and implement the use of a Strangulation Supplement (recently retitled: The Asphyxiation Assessment) into the field 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. In collaboration with the non-profit, RESPOND Against Violence she is working to develop a evidence-based protocol to assist communities to implement a Blueprint of Policies for Asphyxiation Crimes.
