Her knowledge has expanded from traditional print productions and marketing to social media, SEO, and other online-related marketing. Kelly spends her days learning all of the goals, passions, and services of our great clients in order to write optimized, engaging content in each client’s own voice. She helps each busy small business owner develop a strong online presence using various social media platforms, building their relationships with customers and generating leads in the process.

When she closes up the laptop she’s a military wife and a mom of two high-energy kiddos. She loves coffee and dark craft beer and any combination or variation of the two. She’s an avid runner, having completed several half marathons and 25Ks with her sights set on some longer distances in the coming months.
According to Kelly, “I enjoy building relationships with our clients and learning the ins and outs of their businesses. I love seeing a customer’s excitement as they watch their online presence grow and see real tangible results.”
