Kristie McLeod - Content Marketing Specialist at FSM

Stories. Strategy. Sunshine.

On one hand, Kristie is a storyteller as she creates engaging social media posts, blog articles and other content. On the other hand, she is our white-glove quality assurance inspector, proofreading with laser focus. Often, after a good day, she will break into a handstand – staying true to brand by becoming a human exclamation point!

Kristie brings a fascinating fusion of talent to FSM. Her childhood love of reading and writing led to a B.A. in English from the University of Akron. Her work experience as a legal proofreader, fitness center administrator, ice cream shop manager and copywriter for a national retail chain helps her understand the needs of our diverse client base.

Kristie has deep Akron roots on both sides of her family and she’s our go-to person for “inside Akron” information. She loves animals so much it’s somewhat risky for her to visit an animal shelter without rescuing another one (to add to her two cats and two dogs). An Akron city girl, through and through, she spent many weekends outside of town grooming and riding her family’s horses. She still loves anything that takes her outside into the sunshine.

Kristie generates a lot of digital content for us, but in her own time she paints, draws and fills notebooks with poems and stories. She is inspired by her grandmother, an artist who created many cool designs and marketing pieces for businesses in greater Akron and Cleveland.

Cool stories, right? Kristie’s got a lot of them. That’s why she’s perfect to be on the content team that tells our clients’ stories.
