About Kelli

hotelselfieIn my professional life, I’m a business and community leader. In my academic life, I’m a cheerleader, mentor and adviser.

I have more than a decade of public relations experience, mostly as the director of a full-service public relations, marketing and design agency. As such, I’ve been directly responsible for high-level communication, strategic planning, budget management and leadership for a wide variety of clients, many of which are nonprofits and community organizations.

My work with undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism & Communication has required me to stay on the cutting edge of research and practice in public relations. It’s also given me a chance to work with some of the most talented educators and researchers I know. I’m honored to serve as the area coordinator for the public relations sequence.
