Amanda Heal

I worked with Kelli when she was a member of Project Starfish, and I was the Training and Engagement Manager. I always found Kelli to be enthusiastic and hard-working. Whilst at Project Starfish, Kelli was an indispensable member of our Social Media team, and instigated a highly successful project in which we reached out to, and trained, university students.

I worked with Kelli for the better part of a year with Project STARFISH America and I can unequivocally state she is one of the brightest most well prepared co-workers I've ever had the pleasure of working with, she is tremendous ! She's a self-starter who takes initiative to complete projects in a timely manner and execute them with flawless efficiency.Kelli would be the best investment in human capital ANY company could make,please don't hesitate to bring her aboard, you'll be well pleased!!

Kelli has been one of the most prolific contributors to and is a very valuable member of the reporting team; having made a number of contributions over the past year which have proved very popular with our audiences. No assignment is too big or small for Kelli, whether it be undertaking on the ground reporting at royal engagements or conducting interviews with a variety of different people. I would most certainly recommend Kelli for any opportunities that may arise.

What I read

romance fiction of all genres accept Paranormal and Inspirational; various blogs/newsletters on grant writing and fundraising, marketing and writing. I love collecting inspirational and motivational quotes.

Side projects

I enjoy volunteering and writing my own fiction when I have time. I love scented candles, singing, going to the movies, laughing and eating out, (when I can). I also take online courses related to document and website accessibility, and designing sites.

Ideal team

People who are motivated, engaging, helpful, fun, and professional. I don't need someone looking over my shoulder to make sure I'm doing my job. If I have questions, I'll ask. I like working with teams of no more than four or five.
