Today we’d like to introduce you to Kacie Anderson.
Hi Kacie, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I have always been someone who loves to connect people to their goals and their passions. In 2007, I started working for my Uncle who is a huge movie publicist and that’s when the stars aligned for me and I realized where I was meant to be. The world of public relations has evolved and diversified so much since then and I have loved evolving with it. These days I am heavily immersed in the brand partnerships, creative strategies, as well as the P.R. side of things. I’ve had the honor of working with kegendary brands such as Foot Locker and Nike on various projects, which I think is pretty damn cool for a one woman show.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It’s been an educational road, to say the least. I spend a lot of time listening, learning, asking questions and researching new topics and practices. I also take full advantage of the professionals I have been blessed to know, who are in my corner, by soaking up any and all knowledge they share with me. My journey involves a lot of trial and error, but all amazing learning experiences and takeaways. I think the struggles I still face, as I’m sure many women can agree, are the gender biases which unfortunately still exist in most idustries, but I love a good fight, so I’m in it for the long haul.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I wear many hats from talent management to content creation and strategy. Anything that allows me to connect people or companies to their goals and passions, I want all of it! I have made a name for myself by always being authentically me no matter what job or project I’m working on and I feel that is what truly sets me apart from the masses.
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
Growing up I was and still am goofy, hella outgoing, talkative, free-spirited, and a big time empath. I was the kid who had to have a separate report card for talking. My teacher partnered up with my mother, and each week would send me home with a report card they created, to keep me from talking in class. If I made it to the end of the week with stars for each day, I’d get to go to Toys-R-Us and pick out a toy. Pretty sure I made it to Toys-R-Us maybe three times out of the entire school year. I feel like I should have gotten extra credit for having personality, but what can you do? Lol!! One thing that did work in my favor though, is that I’ve never been shy. In high school, I was involved in drama, choir, M.E.C.H.A, the Polynesian club, and was the homecoming queen. In this line of work, you need to be comfortable meeting and speaking with all types of people. Thank the lort my crazy paid off.
