HighRock Holdings, LLC Announces Hiring of Kelsi Waltemire

Kelsi WaltemireHighRock is pleased to announce the hiring of Kelsi Waltemire as Digital & Social Media Strategist. People person by nature, Kelsi enjoys networking, making connections, and being involved in the community. From sports leagues to church greeter and volunteer opportunities with nonprofits, she loves to share her contagious enthusiasm.

Born and raised in Hagerstown, Kelsi is passionate about seeing locals succeed in business. Her marketing career began while she interned with Clear Channel Radio for DC101, where her love for radio (and indie alt rock music) grew beyond her control. After graduating from Shepherd University with a B.S. in Communications, Kelsi continued working in radio as the Promotions Coordinator for Hot 99.5 in DC. Managing an Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch brought her back to Hagerstown and taught her how to build and maintain client relationships.

In 2010, the calling to return to radio was like music to her ears and Kelsi began as a Sales Account Executive with Verstandig Broadcasting, a series of four locally owned radio stations. She obtained her 1st and 2nd level certification as a Digital Marketing Consultant and an American Management Association certificate in General Management.

Most recently, Kelsi was the Regional Sales & Marketing Specialist for Susquehanna Bank. Among her duties were advertising buys, managing strategic marketing efforts, community outreach, and sales for retail branches in Washington and Franklin Counties. Her position was eliminated through restructuring, which opened the door for her to join the HighRock team. At HighRock, Kelsi creates dynamic marketing plans that include digital and social media advertising.

Kelsi is engaged and lives in Hagerstown with her fiancé, Aaron, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. In her free time, Kelsi enjoys playing softball, teaching her niece and nephew cool things, shoe shopping, seeing live music and stand up comedy, watching crime shows, and educating others on all natural health alternatives. Her claim to fame is the creation of the “usie” via her phablet’s very large camera screen.
