Kelly Fairall - Marketing & Social Media Coordinator 

Kelly loves everything to do with marketing, almost as much as she loves music. So it was no surprise that she first majored in marketing and then went on to take broadcasting. For the past 14 years, she has worked in the radio industry holding many titles from special events, announcer, promotions director to account executive. She is very excited to assist Catapult and put her extensive marketing knowledge to good use!
