Cindy Kirkley

Office Manager


Cindy joined the John Locke Foundation staff in 2015. She keeps the office running smoothly and is thrilled to be part of the dynamic, intelligent people who make up JLF.

The JLF principles of freedom and small government are the same principles that have guided her throughout her career. As a small business owner for over 2 decades, she knows first hand the challenges that business owners face in today’s market. That business is still thriving today.

Born in Oyster Bay, New York, (Bless her heart!) and schooled in northern Virginia, she moved to Raleigh in 1989 with her husband and children.

When not working, Cindy enjoys reading about history, politics and religion – all topics that get her in trouble!

About John Locke Foundation

We are North Carolina’s Most Trusted and Influential Source of Common Sense. The John Locke Foundation was created in 1990 as an independent, nonprofit think tank that would work “for truth, for freedom, and for the future of North Carolina.” The Foundation is named for John Locke (1632-1704), an English philosopher whose writings inspired Thomas Jefferson and the other Founders.

The John Locke Foundation is a 501(c)(3) research institute and is funded solely from voluntary contributions from individuals, corporations, and charitable foundations.
