Kelly has extensive experience with consumer marketing communications. While recent client campaigns have engaged a Grey's Anatomy surgeon to discuss the importance of whole grain bread with Ellen Degeneres, Tyra Banks and Entertainment Tonight and a supermodel to treat lucky Rodeo Drive shoppers to a shopping spree, Kelly puts the greatest importance on a well thought-out and researched pitch. She employs her understanding of the journalist, media outlet, influencers and experts who can deliver consumer messages in the most credible way.
