BIO

About Kelly

I’m a communications practitioner. I help clients – from Fortune 500 companies to up-and-coming startups – communicate their value with compelling, data-rich storytelling.

 

Using multiple channels – press, social media, word of mouth, events – I work to reach and engage target audiences. 

 

My roots are in technology communication. I began by helping represent female founders & moved to CTIA, the U.S. wireless trade association. Today, I continue to work with many tech clients in addition to working actively in the DC startup scene and advocating for the underrepresented in the industry. 

CONSULTANT

Book Me to Speak

My talks and workshops are designed to help tech-focused professionals incorporate communications best practices into their careers and side projects. My goal is to empower people to advocate for themselves – whether that’s by cultivating a strong & genuine personal brand, pitching the media on your subject matter expertise, or self-publishing content to control and amplify a bold narrative.
