Fractional CMO | Fun Nerd

A Virginia export who landed in Texas by way of attending graduate school at Texas A&M University, Kelly is BlueByrd’s resident lexiphile. After noticing the land in College Station was so flat she could see Dallas when she looked north, she grew into a true Texan and has lived in Houston for the past 25 years.

Kelly’s launched her career in marketing 10 years ago with Mind Dance Marketing, where she began as a contractor focused on event marketing. Growing steadily with the company, Kelly negotiated and managed approximately two dozen partnerships with MLB, MLS, and NBA organizations prior to moving into her most recent role as Director of Brand Management.

Prior to her agency tenure, Kelly worked in vendor management for numerous large Houston organizations and taught public speaking at University of Houston-Downtown, which she hopes to do again to feed her passion for learning and teaching others.

Other skills include turning conversations into song lyrics, crafting puns she finds incredibly amusing, and reciting meaningless trivia.
