Meet our Leadership Team

Karraine Moody, Chief Executive Officer

Michael DeRoy, Director of Finance

Mike has been the Finance Director since April 2015. He came here following a 25 year career as a Self Employed CPA. He is an MBA graduate of Quinnipiac University, and he began his profession with the New Haven office of Ernst & Young.  “I was fortunate that my parents provided me with many things they didn’t have growing up. One of those was home they owned. Our family home was largely built, at night and on weekends, by my father. I’m proud that at Habitat we build homes that support the families that work alongside us.”

Matthew Boyne, Director of ReStore Operations







Matt Boyne is an old guy with useful knowledge who has been around construction his entire life. Having attended college for building construction, civil engineering and management, Matt has managed millwork shops, been a manufactures representative for the kitchen cabinet industry, as well as working with contractors selling trim, kitchens, lumber, siding and roofing. He is here because someone saw something in him that he did not, and through persistence, he is a part of Hartford Habitat.

Kris McKelvie, Director of Construction

Kris has worked over a dozen years with Habitat for Humanity, starting his career through the AmeriCorps program in 2007. He became a licensed contractor and expanded his management skills to step into the role of Director of Construction here at Hartford Habitat in 2017. Kris combines his desire to build affordable and environmentally friendly homes with his passion for creating a work atmosphere of collaboration, learning, and fun.”
