About this event

Kelly is Lansing’s best-known and most-accomplished communications expert, evident by the results of all the MIRS/EPIC-MRA State Capitol Surveys. The poll of hundreds of Capital City insiders consistently ranks Kelly as the most effective public relations professional around.

Kelly drives our commitment to our clients and to our values. We’ve got a high bar at Truscott Rossman and Kelly sets it higher every day. As a result, no firm works harder to get the job done for our clients than we do — and it shows. Nothing lights her fire like a client challenge — and she’s at her absolute best (just watch her eyes light up!) when she’s helping our clients tackle their thorniest issues and situations.

She chairs the Michigan Chamber Foundation and serves on several other boards, including the Michigan Political Leadership Program the Citizens Research Council and the Olivet College Board of Trustees.

Although she’s been honored with many awards as a PR professional and woman business owner, nothing thrills her more than hanging out with her four kids and her beloved husband, Officer Dave.
