MEET KEVIN LINDON RYAN
Hello! Thanks for stopping by.
I'm Kevin, a Washington, DC-based marketing communications and public relations professional often spotted walking four to five miles a day (in dress shoes!), drinking iced Americanos in less than three minutes twice daily, and with an iPhone or pen in hand.
I'm most proud of living an interesting life, including my unexpected career journey, wild professional accomplishments, and exciting work experience.
In 2016 and 2017, while I interviewed for dream jobs, desiring full time employment, I turned my side hustle, professional skills, and client projects into a full-on business and brand: KLR | PR.
Singlehandedly, I developed a local and national reputation and brand identity: designing a logo, business name, website, and ultimately reaching my objectives and bringing my vision to life. Apparently, it worked to build credibility and establish myself as an expert.
My pitches, tips, and talking points were published in various online and print publications (PRESS PAGE), I spoke at a corporate event on a panel for Gannett/USA Today, and taught a webinar to college students.
I continued to grow. In a year, I reached my goal: I landed a full time job with a Washington, DC-based PR firm, and now this website exists to show some of what I’m capable of and act as my online resume and personal and professional brand.
Prior to my current role in health communications for a federal government client, I excelled as a Marketing Communications Specialist at a Fortune 100 health care provider, on the Medicare member engagement team. In health care, I am able to focus on my passion for consumer lifestyle marketing while helping to improve health and well-being.
From national nonprofits, small businesses, technology and media companies, a boutique PR firm, and various clients in home and design, I've hustled and helped organizations grow. My client work, tips, and stories are featured in The Washington Post, CMSWire, Fundera Ledger, and Realtor.com. CLICK HERE for more press and media.
Have questions? Let's chat. Looking forward! - KEVIN
Stories are how audiences remember. "You" is the most effective word in marketing. Sell the problem you solve, not the product or service.
