Media Relations Specialist
As a media relations specialist at Walker Sands, Kiley works with the media to secure coverage for her B2B fintech clients. She conducts media outreach and coordination, creates longform content and establishes clients as industry thought leaders.
Before joining the Walker Sands team, Kiley worked for a nonprofit called The Central Illinois Youth Symphony where she wrote and distributed press releases, developed creative content and managed fundraisers and events. Kiley graduated summa cum laude from Bradley University with a bachelor’s degree in public relations and Spanish with a minor in marketing.
When Kiley isn’t at work, she can be found watching Friends reruns (for the thousandth time) or reading whichever book she currently has her hands on.

London! I have family around Liverpool, and it’s such a beautiful city.
