I-heart-Media

By Pat Nowak

A Cincinnati native and 1983 Bowling Green graduate, Kellie started her professional career in Toledo, Ohio at Fahlgren Advertising (formerly Fahlgren & Ferris) as an Account Executive.  In 1985, her career path shifted to McDonald’s Corporation where she worked as a Regional Marketing Supervisor, for 7 years.

For the last 25 years, she has enjoyed a media sales career at iHeartMedia Toledo, serving as Area President for 33 radio stations.  Kellie, married to Kevin for 30 years, has two children, Morgan 27 and Jacob 25.

Where do you call home?  I grew up in Cincinnati for most of my childhood, but Toledo is definitely home now.

What was your first job? McDonald’s and years later I ended up working for the corporation in a marketing position – what a great company to work for. They had a huge influence on my work ethic.

What health or lifestyle tips do you support?  I’m a big believer that work/life balance makes for a very happy life.  I’ve been married to Kevin for 30 years and although we’ve both been entrenched in our careers for our entire marriage, we always make time for each other, and we raised two wonderful children.  Along with a very healthy diet, daily exercise and an active lifestyle.

Your biggest self-indulgence? Red wine, dark chocolate, travel and spa services!

I have always wanted to …? Own a radio station and write a book.

What trait do you admire in others? Organization. Communication.  Confidence.

Something most people don’t know about you? I’m directionally and time zone challenged.

Words you live by? There’s always a solution.  When you have a bad day, the next day is always better!  When you make a mistake, take ownership.

Your proudest accomplishment? My career and raising an amazing family.

Person you most respect? Too many individual people to name, but anybody that works hard, cares about people and doesn’t act entitled.  Hard work solves a lot of problems.
