Hi, my name is Keli and here's a little about what I do. I write and edit, manage social media, and throw events. Here's a selection of my ventures.
I also help write and promote BYGays to the queer and straight communities alike. Head on over the the Editorial section at the top for a curated selection of my musings.
We also throw sporsored events like Pool Parties, Fundraisers, and The Official Capital Pride Party. As a team we obtain sponsors including Capitol Pride, Smirnoff, and Vitamin Water. We also organize venues and creatively collaborate with promoters, DJ's, artists, and photographers.
I currently work for One Medical Group as a Brand Ambassador and community manager assisatnt. At our influencer events I engage attendees to inform on One Medical's brand and explain the practice. Over the past eight months I've been to approximately ten events in New York and in San Francisco where I turn attendees into new patients. In a few instances I converted skeptical attendees to patients on the spot using our mobile app. I gradually increased my involvement and became the point person and preferred ambassador for events. To be honest, I LOVE going to these events to meet people, chat about the benefits of the company and act as it's biggest cheerleader.
Simultaneously, I worked on developing the company's brand via two social media outlets. I developed our Pinterest from a skeleton into a full fledged outlet for client retention and acquisition. I copywrote Pins and actively sought out influential pinners to develop digital relationships. My third area of brand development invovled research on analytics for Pinterest.
I also developed a weekly Tweet called #HealthyHabit to promote the brand via a different outlet.
Next, I help found Vestibule DC, a pop up gallery with accompanying open event. I secured sponsorship from PBR for product for over 600 people and worked with artists to curate a photography show. I also reached out to media for coverage including Brightest Young Things and Project Pink Line. Here are a few photos.
Finally, while working at the Washington City Paper, I contributed a couple of articles: an art review, and a description of my trials with a DC landlord. As a receptionist, then as a sales assistant, I switched hats frequently. I managed interns, fielded customer service calls, managed distribution and circulation, and organized weekly mailings.
