OUR PEOPLE

  • Kim founded McKeeman Communications more than 25 years ago with a single passion: help businesses and non-profits solve problems and succeed. From creating a virtual agency model against the odds in the ’90s, and growing her team members to be true business partners, “there has to be a way” is just the way Kim thinks. She’s incessantly curious and loves new challenges. Maybe that’s why she works with her leadership team daily to continue to evolve their agency. Yes, daily. “I’m one day smarter than I was yesterday” is her approach to work and life, and she encourages the same with colleagues. Oh, and she’s pretty darn good at PR and communications, including crisis management. Family life is critically important to Kim, and probably why she’s always referred to “the McKeeman Boys” as her most valued client. Email Kim
  • Throughout Caroline’s career with McKeeman Communications, she has been instrumental in creating and leading strategic integrated communications plans for a bevy of B2C and non-profit clients. Coming from a family of journalists, she had communications in her blood. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Mass Communication from Peace College in Raleigh, where she served as editor-in-chief of the college newspaper. Caroline then began her career on the TV news desk. Clients value Caroline’s personal passion for their work, her strategic understanding of communications, media, and what makes news. As a trusted thought partner with unparalleled “get it done” skills, Caroline’s client care is evident in the solid relationships she authentically builds and maintains daily. Caroline and her husband, Jeremy, have called the Oak City home for more than 13 years and enjoy spending time with their kids – Austin and Madeleine – as well as frequenting Raleigh restaurants and craft breweries when they’re not heading to the NC coast.

  • Whitney started her career with McKeeman Communications as an account coordinator, and is the most frequently-promoted employee in the company’s history – for good reason. Her ability to connect with clients, assess their needs, provide clear direction to her account teams, and win by achieving a shared agency/client vision of success is what drives her. Her social media, event management, and issues management experience make her a triple-threat account leader and team member. When Whitney’s not traveling or planning her next trip, she enjoys being at home with her husband, John, and Siberian Husky, Kelso, cooking, watching movies, and riding bikes.

  • Katie has spent the past 13 years working at one of North Carolina’s top-rated news stations as an Emmy-nominated producer. From managing to organizing and writing, Katie knows the inner workings of the newsroom and what it takes to make our clients a news story. Clients can utilize Katie’s knowledge of the industry and how it’s evolving to capitalize on major events, prepare for the media spotlight, and know which media platform is best for them. Katie and her husband, Brian, have lived in Charlotte since 2010. They love spending time with their baby girl, Liv, and fur babies, Sam and Zara. Katie and Brian also love navigating through the newest spots of the Queen City’s food and beer scene.

  • Becky’s history working in research with USA Today and North Carolina’s leading daily newspaper, The News & Observer, provided a great foundation for her work with McKeeman Communications. Over the last nine years, Becky has become a trusted go-to for project and event management. As an Account Executive, she’s successfully managed countless projects and events, “rolling up her sleeves” while also providing recommendations to best support the client and her team. Becky, a native Montanan, has lived in Raleigh for 22 years with her husband, Thad, and daughter, Parker. She now considers herself native to North Carolina and will “bless your heart” like a true southerner.

  • Victoria started her journey with McKeeman Communications as an intern in January 2018. After completing her internship in May, she was offered a summer contract position with McKeeman, and officially joined the team as an Account Executive in October. She holds a degree in University Studies from East Carolina University with a concentration in Business and Technical Communication and Administration. A true freakishly-curious problem solver, she is driven by a passion for learning new things and finding outside-the-box solutions for agency and client issues. In her free time, you can find Victoria roaming bookstores (she’s high-tech and old school), playing video games with her husband, and hunting down pieces of useless trivia for her eventual Jeopardy debut.

  • Alysa is McKeeman’s newest team member joining in 2019 as a Senior Account Executive. Prior to working with McKeeman, Alysa was the Marketing Manager for 10 dental practices in South Carolina and Georgia. Alysa’s intricate design capabilities and attention to detail has already made her invaluable to the team.

  • Renee has taken her lifelong passion for art and design and worked for more than 16 years in the graphic design field, with nine of those years as a close partner of McKeeman Communications. She loves helping small and medium-sized businesses creatively meet their design needs, as well as using her talents to help nonprofits close to her heart. Renee graduated with honors from Winthrop University with a degree in Visual Communication Design and a concentration in Illustration. Her expertise is in logo design, print and marketing materials, digital and promotional products.

  • Shannon excels at identifying and building partnerships for clients, understanding media trends and angles, and executing dynamic special events. In her PR career, a big focus of Shannon’s work has been around community issues including housing, health care and substance abuse. Clients benefit from her ability to advocate for social programs and deliver messaging that builds community support.
