As Meerkat Media's founder and director, Kristin Chambers learned early in her career that marketing is most successful through communicating effectively to reach your audience. Beginning her career as a news reporter, music journalist and arts columnist, writing allowed her to push beyond bylines and into public relations and marketing in New York City. After two years, she relocated back to sunny Florida in 2012 where she began directing marketing programs, conferences, public relations, and strategic partnerships until early 2017.
Accumulation of these efforts resulted in expertise in the areas of content creation, copywriting, social media strategy, email marketing, lead generation, analytics, press outreach, and business development, which is now implemented through national and international clientele. Kristin graduated from Flagler College in 2007, but believes that successful marketing is accomplished through willing to adapt to yearly trends and updates, and that learning – in business, marketing, or life – never stops.
