Kelly Kauffman


A recent San Diego State University graduate, Kelly Kauffman received a degree in Journalism Media Studies with a minor in Television, Film, and Media. Through some of her Media Studies classes, she became interested in the world of social media and decided to pursue it as a career. She completed a social media internship with Meals-On-Wheels San Diego in February 2012, where she worked on building up their social presence and helped them integrate social media channels like Pinterest into their annual Bootlegger’s Ball event.

After her first internship, Kelly wanted to grow her social media expertise, and started interning for Thunder SEO in late August 2012, and joined our team full time in 2013. She has been learning a lot through her co-workers as a social media and content marketing intern, and loving the Thunder Cats! Kelly aspires to learn and help as much as she can while she is here.

When she’s not in the office, Kelly enjoys being a major film buff, reading a few sci-fi novels and browsing Tumblr.
