Kelsey Wuertz
Marketing Communications Manager

Hi, I am Kelsey … I graduated cum laude from the University of Missouri – Columbia’s School of Journalism with a degree in strategic communication and minor in business in December of 2009. After graduation, I came back to the St. Louis area and was lucky enough to get an internship (in my field) here at Gabriel Group. Following my internship, I was hired on full-time … It seems like just yesterday that I started my first “big girl” job, but as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun!

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy traveling, decorating my home and cooking (how did people survive before Pinterest?!).

My first job was at Lyon’s Frozen Custard in St. Charles, Missouri … It was here that I met my husband.

As a child, I wanted to grow up to be the next Katie Couric. I even went away to Mizzou with plans of pursuing my dream of being a broadcast journalist … But first semester of my freshmen year in my Introduction to Journalism course, a very passionate and talented advertiser and professor persuaded me to switch my focus area from broadcast to strategic communication, and I have never looked back.
