Hey there! I'm Kelley, a Marketing Manager with a love for graphic design and branding. Over the past decade, I've managed teams and projects across print and digital design, web, SEO, social media, and large-format printing.
I thrive on data visualization and meticulous planning, both at work and in my personal life. My mission is to showcase clients and employers in the best light and create sustainable strategies for brand awareness.
Originally from Dothan, AL, I now design from my home office in Traverse City, Michigan, as the Marketing Manager for Eagle Eye Outfitters in Dothan, AL. I have embraced the culture shock of relocating from Alabama, Hawaii, Washington D.C., and Oregon, to our newest home state, Michigan, all thanks to my husband's military background.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Troy University, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Design, Technology, and Innovation, with a double major in Advertising, blending my artistic eye with effective advertising.
My college journey included valuable internships with The Image Agency, working on projects for prestigious clients like The Cochran Firm and National Trial Lawyers. Post-college, I delved into out-of-home advertising with Durden Outdoor, designing billboards. Later, as a Freelance Graphic Designer, I crafted custom marketing and website designs for various brands, including Eagle Eye Outfitters. In December 2016, I joined Eagle Eye Outfitters full-time as Marketing Manager and have been thriving ever since.
On a personal note, my husband Chris and I have been happily married for almost 9 years. We share our lives with Dude, our ~9-year-old rescue dog, and Curly, our ~3-year-old ginger cat, with a heartwarming rescue story. We bond over camping, golfing, curling, hockey, trivia nights, fishing, and co-ed softball. I also love baking and reading and am currently learning to knit.
Leadership fuels my passion, and I firmly believe "A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit."
My favorite college football teams are TROY and Alabama, and Michigan State found its way into my heart through marriage.
Lastly, a fun fact - I was a pageant girl in the past and achieved 4th runner-up at Miss Alabama USA in 2008, even snagging the preliminary swimsuit award in 2013.
