Kellie M. Walsh

Why work with me?

 
 

Because
effective
communication

means
more than words.

 
 
 

I’m a multidisciplinary creative professional with more than a decade of experience using words, visuals, ideas, and technology to highlight the humanity of inspirational brands.

 

Writing
Services

 
 

I specialize in health, science, technology, arts, education, and business profiles, features, and news, emphasizing the stories of fascinating people and translating complex concepts into approachable language.

 
 
 

I've interviewed an Emmy winner, a Grammy winner, and a Nobel laureate.

Plus, academics, artists, educators, advocates, scientists, doctors, musicians, engineers, entrepreneurs, CEOs, students, postdocs, and one NASA physicist.

(And I once made Alan Alda laugh.)

My goal is to produce content relevant to user needs and strategies realistic to business needs.
