Kellie is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in public relations and minor in fashion merchandising. After interning with SSG during the summer of 2014, she spent nearly three years in the fast-paced world of agency PR in Atlanta. During this time, she had the privilege of sharing local and national client stories through traditional PR tactics, influencer marketing and strategically planned press events. Life then took Kellie and her husband on a three-year adventure to Savannah where she served as a regional marketing manager for over 30 general and specialty dental practices located across Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. When she’s not one step ahead of herself in directing PR strategies for her clients, you can find Kellie on the hunt for her next vinyl gem, spending time outdoors with her husband and furbaby, Rye, or cozying up with the ideal combo of coffee and a good book!
I totally nerd out over: finding a cool coffee mug to commemorate every vacation.
Best advice I’ve ever received: Be kind, always, to yourself and others.
I’m an expert at: cooking for 20, although we’re a party of two.
Favorite word: Namaste – because I love yoga and the meaning behind it. It’s also a fun word to use in puns!
Walk-Up Song: “Born to Be Wild” by Steppenwolf. Growing up, my dad and I would always jam out to this song in the car on high volume. When I got married, we got on stage and rocked out to it together – it was a little too untraditional for the daddy/daughter dance, though 🙂
Why SSG? The leadership, culture and opportunities that allow me to be my most creative self and to grow in my career.
