Where Do You Live: Howell, MI
Family Details: “My immediate family is just my parents and my older brother and we all live in Howell.”
History with ARMOR: “I started at ARMOR in 2016 during my junior year of college. I was a marketing intern and I had such a great time that I never left!” After two years of interning, Kelsey was hired as a full-time member of the ARMOR Marketing team. “I now hold the position of marketing assistant and I am beginning to focus on a more specific role in digital marketing.”
Experience: “During my four years attending Michigan State University, I worked at its MSU Breslin Student Events Center. I started in security and customer service then transitioned to the marketing staff, primarily working on social media and event photography until I eventually became director of the student staff. It was a really cool opportunity to be able to work at so many different events including time spent courtside at MSU Basketball games.”
Hobbies: “I love to ‘road trip’ with my best friend Maddie. We’ve been on The Ellen Show, had front row seats at a Tampa, Florida Lorde concert, and made the trip to Texas for the Cotton Bowl. We never really know where we’ll end up next!” Kelsey is also a bit of a Spotify addict (a digital music streaming service) and enjoys shooting hoops, concerts and traveling.
Favorite Food: Chicken and Nachos!
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring? “I would definitely bring my best friend, an alcoholic beverage, and something to listen to music on.”
Latest Accomplishment: “Making the journey to the ‘land down under.’ Last year, I was fortunate to travel to New South Wales, Australia, and spent some time with locals. It’s an experience I never thought I’d have and I hope to go back one day soon to see more of the country!”
What is on your favorite playlist or “watch” list? “My current favorite singer/musician is Lana Del Rey and I just finished the first season of BBC America’s Killing Eve and it was phenomenal.”
