Kellie M. Walsh
 

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, arts, technology, 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.

As well as 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.

My hope is we can make our audience a little smarter in the process, too.
