Rachel Kirkpatrick comes to Event Marketer from community weekly newspapers in Fairfield County, CT where she spent six years as a reporter-turned-editor covering stories on topics ranging from local wildlife to municipal budgets to house fires, and managing web and social media initiatives. Outside of the local news realm she has experience in brand communications, coordinating projects and developing content and marketing strategies for a New York-based design firm.
She is a graduate of Plymouth State University, a liberal arts school nestled in the New Hampshire White Mountains, where she studied English and history, and served as an editor of the campus literary journal. In her free time she volunteers as a caretaker at an animal shelter, spends time outdoors and tries out new restaurants (though she doesn't pretend, by any means, to have a sophisticated palate). She lives in Connecticut. And yes, that's her cat in her headshot.
