Hi. I'm Kaleigh.

Storyteller. Growth Marketer.

About Me

I’m a former journalist-turned-marketer, and have spent the last several years working, teaching and mentoring in the Chicago startup/tech community.

I find it incredibly gratifying to grow small ideas into something substantial, and am at my best when the challenge is great and the path forward has yet to be written.

My upbringing as a journalist rooted me in public service very early on in my career, so I’m also always on the lookout for opportunities to do work that leaves the world better than I found it.

My Work

As a former journalist, you’ll find that many of the brands I’ve developed are built on a foundation of content. I love a good story and have have been lucky to tell some really great ones over the years. Check out my work below.
