Kiley was an amazing team player. It felt like she gave 200% to every task. She was really easy to work with and brought so much enthusiasm and laughter to our team.

Kiley is a natural leader capable of successfully identifying and implementing business critical strategic initiatives within complex organizations with enthusiasm, team orientation and entrepreneurial spirit. I found her energy, initiative and results orientation drove a culture of greater overall team engagement within the company. Kiley specifically excelled in leading creative design and product innovation initiatives. Her interpersonal skills and business savvy also made her a strong partner in customer management.

Kiley’s proposed changes were clearly and respectfully detailed noting the way in which the improvements would be experienced by our users. Her copywriting and edits were of great help, and because she is an “ideas” person she often provided additional business improvement thoughts along the way. Kiley is very talented, easy to work with and delivers results very quickly. Kiley is brilliant with marketing!
Vicki Morgan, CEO of National College of Dance
I have worked with Kiley for over 15 years. During that time, she has excelled in marketing efforts to drive sales for both tea and coffee. When I started my own business, I knew she was the person I wanted to manage the marketing aspects. She helped me first with my brand identity and then executed all marketing aspects. These included web design, SEO, Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), email blasts, blog posts, sales material, etc. I have seen significant growth in followers on all platforms and received numerous new business leads that have manifested into top-line revenue growth. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve or start their marketing efforts.
Scott Svihula, Founder of Hula Consulting
I found Kiley to be a huge asset to our organization. One of Kiley’s biggest attributes is her positive attitude and influence on others. I always thought of her as our organization’s biggest cheerleader. Kiley was always the first to celebrate both organizational and individual victories. As a small business in the beverage industry, our company faced many challenges and enjoyed many triumphs. It is easy to get discouraged when competing with the larger organizations who have unlimited budgets and support. In order to thrive in an environment like that you must be someone who can think creatively, and not be afraid to roll up your sleeves and put forth the extra effort. Kiley fit right in and, indeed, thrived.
Of course her attributes do not end there. Kiley is also a creative thinker and was an integral part of the team that developed an exclusive ready to drink bottled tea, which went on to win several prestigious awards. When Kiley relocated, we simply moved her from a full time employee to contract labor and she continued her position with many of the same duties and responsibilities. Kiley’s tenacity and her unrelenting positive outlook and attitude make her a great candidate for any Marketing/Advertising or Design position, specifically in a hands-on environment where many of her skills could be utilized.

Kiley is a self-motivating person with absolutely wonderful people skills and worked well within our teams. Kiley also provided marketing insights, creative and sales support for new and existing key accounts, maintained customer relationships and assisted with new product introductions. She worked directly with our CEO, and implemented China Mist's award-winning RTD line, which won several awards.
Kiley is proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and has CMS/CRM Platform Diverse skills. Kiley also managed Trade Show materials, logistics, promotion and, most importantly, follow-up.
