As many of you know, the Graco headquarters moved from Pennsylvania to Georgia last month. And as some of you have heard, I decided not to make that move. And although I won’t be saying my official goodbye until this Friday, I wanted to introduce the new lead blogger who will be guiding the Graco team here on the blog and across our other social media venues- Kelly Voelker.
I have only known Kelly a short time but here’s what I’m sure of- you will love her! And as if that wasn’t enough, she’s darn smart too. Kelly has a wonderful energy and perspective that she’s going to bring to this role and some great experience in the world of public relations. Her work includes an impressive list of clients like Starbucks, Dove and Tiffany’s. And while Kelly may be new to Graco, she’s not new to the world of social media and blogger outreach so expect to hear from her here, on Facebook and on Twitter (about work and her upcoming wedding too!)
So I could go on and on (I’ve been known to do that), but I’ll let Kelly tell you a little about herself. We are very happy she’s here!
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to become a part of the Graco family – and to get to know all of you. Lindsay’s left some big shoes to fill so go easy on me
I’m not a mom just yet, but even in a week’s time at Graco, I’ve learned more about babies and parenting than I (or my fiancé!) ever expected. I’ve also magically become the new best friend to all of my friends and family members with kids – they have so many questions! I hope I can be as much of a resource for you as I am trying to be for them. Even if I don’t have all of the answers right away, luckily I know a few folks who do!
I’ll be representing Graco as a brand here, but I’ll also be representing you and the community’s voice within our organization. I’m looking forward to hearing your funny moments, questions and ideas (and to sharing a few of my own) along the way. You’ll also hear from me on our Facebook page and if you’re on Twitter, feel free to follow me at @gracobaby (for Graco-specific news and info) and @KellyVoelker (for commentary on what I had for breakfast, celebrity gossip and other bits of over-sharing).
Next time I talk to you – I’ll be a married woman!
As if that wasn’t enough info, here’s a little more about Kelly.
