A skilled writer, editor, and manager, Kelleigh is the managing editor for the Appalachian Mountain Club’s magazine, AMC Outdoors. She oversees the production of a top-quality publication, from the early brainstorming stages, to writing and assigning stories, to editing and designing the layout with her team. In 2019, she contributed to the successful redesign of the magazine, rebranding the look and feel, including negotiating a new contract for better, more sustainable paper. In 2020, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, Kelleigh and her team were tasked with ending the print run of the magazine and transition it into a digital version, providing readers with the same high quality content that the magazine is known for.
Kelleigh is a published writer with features inAMC Outdoors, Systems Contractor News, Pro Sound News, The MetroWest Daily News, The Westborough News, and more. While most of her coverage focuses on the outdoor industry and environmental conservation, Kelleigh has also covered topics including travel and tourism, art and architecture, criminal justice reform, and AV/ pro audio.
She is also a skilled communications and media manager, providing clients in the political and non-profit industries with assistance navigating traditional and social media platforms. Her expertise in public relations, messaging, and branding have helped clients boost their image, appealing to voters, donors, and other supporters to help achieve the clients’ target goals.
Out of the office, Kelleigh is an avid hiker, gardener, and (at home) chef, keeping in mind the importance of sustainable food sources and the connection her decisions have on the future of the Earth. During her travels, she picks up on new recipes and ingredients, while also making time to explore the art and architecture of the region. Kelleigh is based in Cambridge, Mass., and prefers to be outdoors as much as possible.
