TurningPointCT - Social Media Assistant

Kailey joined TurningPointCT.org as the social media assistant in 2021. Kailey is a young adult who is passionate about helping to end the stigma that surrounds mental health. She is a mental health advocate that is in recovery from several mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. She is also in recovery from unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Kailey graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a degree in New Media Studies in August of 2020. During school, she learned various skills such as graphic design, how to create audio pieces, how to create video pieces, and a lot of photography skills.

Most of Kailey’s social media experience comes from working on her mom’s blog Low Carb Yum. Kailey has been working for her mom since 2015. She helps with various tasks such as photographing the recipes, creating meal plans, creating content for social media, and scheduling content out.

Kailey is a very creative person and she uses art as well as music as a way to cope. She is very big into nature and wildlife photography, but she also loves to take portraits. Her favorite thing to capture when photographing people is their raw emotion. For this reason, candid photos are her favorite to take. She loves to connect with others who also love photography and the outdoors. Additionally, she likes to play the guitar, the piano, and the ukulele as well as sing to help decompress and relieve stress.
