Meet Elly!

Tell us a little bit about your background before joining The Key team. 
I kind of fell into PR - I wanted to work at Human Rights Watch, and there was an internship open on the communications team. I was frustrated at the lack of public awareness about human rights abuses, and it turned out the best place to change that was in PR. I loved the opportunity to work on issues that mattered to me, and found out I also love the fast-paced world of PR. Those priorities led me to the Clinton Foundation, then an education venture philanthropy, and now to The Key!

Describe your work style in five words. 
Grammar-obsessed, get sh*t done.

What are you favorite kinds of projects to tackle?
Something where I have to learn something new and make it interesting for an average consumer. I'm really excited about a new client, Lively, who is providing innovative healthcare savings accounts (HSAs) - it might sound like a yawn, but there is huge untapped savings potential and I love the challenge of bringing it to a wider audience.

What’s your proudest moment at work? I love the crazy exciting days, like when Skip was awarded one of two e-scooter permits in SF. We placed close to 60 pieces and also got broadcast coverage with Bloomberg and Cheddar in the span of 48 hours - it was great to be part of the team making all of that happen! 

What makes you the most excited to be at The Key?
The opportunity to work with clients who are combining tech and social impact, and working with a team of inspiring women who are passionate about supporting those values.
