Marketing Specialist



Jess Kleean

Marketing Specialist

I believe that everybody has a unique perspective worth exploring, and to get the full perspective, we have to make sure that everyone has a voice in the conversation.

As a content creator, I create holistic content that tells a comprehensive and, above all else, honest, human story. As a marketing specialist, I use data-driven results to provide our clients with strategically sound insight to effectively engage their audience and scale their success.

I never appreciated the charm of small towns – until I realized how much they shaped me. I grew up in Welcome, NC, surrounded by loving family & friends, who instilled in me the importance of having a kind heart & sensitive soul. I moved to (equally small) Boone, NC, where I found my passion for digital marketing and compelling content creation. (This is also where I discovered my passions for local coffee, shopping small, the Blue Ridge Mountains and Pabst Blue Ribbon).

I moved to Raleigh after graduating from Appalachian State University, and where I’ve loved every aspect of living in this vibrant city. Except I do miss authentic Lexington BBQ at least once a week.

I try to approach every situation with a sense of humor, and I always love a (“good”) pun. I’m excited to be working on a team that consistently goes above and beyond to serve our clients and find creative solutions.
