Beauty vet, Marketing consultant, COO of the Household, Mom of two.
Hi! I’m Kellie. A mom who is 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 moved back home to New Jersey and started working at a telecommunications company in a financial analyst program, which was life changing in two ways. First was the realization that 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, began working at Revlon and found my next love: marketing beauty products. Here, 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 was fortunate to enjoy amazing experiences such as attending NY Fashion Week, working with celebrities and makeup artists, and partnering with companies including Refinery 29, Google, Vogue, and Allure.
In the middle of it all, my husband and I moved to Philadelphia. I stayed at Revlon and began commuting to NYC. This was meant to be short term, however, it lasted 5 years and through the birth of my son. Everything changed when our family relocated again to Washington, D.C. while I was 7 months pregnant with our daughter, and soon switched from a commuting, full-time working mom to a stay at home mom of two, Sam and Marielle. After some time getting settled in a new city, 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 and beauty and to celebrate the challenges and joys of being a mom.
