Meet The Effervescent Elise Kelly

Need a well-written piece of content or a health tip? Then you need an Elise Kelly.

Elise joined Parachute Media in August and has already become an invaluable part of the team. She works with our clients to tell their brand story and reach out to grow and connect their audiences in an authentic way.

Elise is already a rockstar blogger on her own, so she knows exactly what it takes to stand out on social media platforms. Blogging became a crash course in SEO for Elise, quickly learning the importance of making sure the audience she wanted to reach could actually find her. Both of those skills make her an incredibly valuable asset to our client roster!

Elise’s passion for social media comes from the desire to create something that inspires people to try something new while building community at the same time. “I love producing content that encourages the audience to share their own perspective, or send to friend to start a conversation,” says Elise. “If something I write can truly connect and resonate with someone, then I feel like I’ve done my job!”

What does Elise do when she’s not in the office? “You’ll probably find me trying out a new workout class, healthy recipe, or planning my next out-of-town adventure!”

Parachute Media: If you could Skype with anyone living or dead, who would it be?

Elise: I wish I could Skype with my pup, Salem, whenever I’m not at home. I’m always curious about what kind of mischief she’s getting into. #crazydoglady

Parachute Media: What is your grand, audacious goal?

Elise: One of my truest passions is health and wellness, so I’d love to create a space, whether that’s a physical space or somewhere digital, that makes these topics accessible. I want to be able to share my love of clean eating, fitness, and just all around feeling good with others in a big way, even if I’m not sure what that means yet.

Parachute Media: What is something quirky about you?

Elise: I was in an acapella group in college! It was only a little bit like Pitch Perfect.

Parachute Media: Who is your professional role model?

Elise: I really love Aliza Licht who has totally rocked the social media scene since the beginning. She also didn’t take a traditional path to working in marketing, being pre-med in college. As someone with a degree in political science who changed direction after college, that gave me a lot of encouragement!
