Hi! I’m Kellie. A mom on the lookout to find beauty in the every day…a classic blazer, a fun shade of lipstick, a peacefully consumed meal with a glass of wine.
After graduating from American University, I worked at a telecommunications company in thier financial analyst program. This was life changing in two ways. First, I discovered you need to have a passion for what you do (and base stations are a hard thing to love). Secondly, you can meet the love of your life in the strangest of places.
After receiving my Masters from Babson College, I moved to NYC. Here, I began working at Revlon and found my next love: marketing beauty products. I was part of an amazing team of women that together developed product concepts, designed packages, named lipstick shades, wrote ad copy, and learned how women (and men) express themselves through the power of makeup. Along the way, I enjoyed amazing experiences like attending NY Fashion Week, working with celebrities and makeup artists, and partnering with companies such as Refinery 29, Google, Vogue, and Allure.
In the middle of it all, my husband and I moved to Philadelphia. I stayed at Revlon and commuted to NYC. While this was meant to be short term, it lasted 5 years and through the birth of my son.
Then, everything changed when our family relocated to Washington, D.C. while I was 7 months pregnant . I soon switched from a commuting, full-time working mom to a stay at home mom of two, Sam and Marielle. I began working as a Marketing consultant at companies including Cosnova and Bluemercury.
Finding Beauty Mom started as a way to continue my passion for marketing, beauty and the joys of being a mom.
