Kelly Grace Gibson is a revolutionary and entrepreneurial political consultant with 20 years of experience directing multi-pronged messaging and communications programs in support of local, state, and national positioning, gender inequality, and political campaigns. It is her personal mission is to bring more equity to political media, always seeking out ways for women to have a more significant voice.
This drive was the reason to launch Stronger Than Communications in 2020 – Kelly’s one of the few tried and tested women in media consulting. She’s a media powerhouse making ads, producing media and directing strategic messaging for candidates, environmental organizations, unions, democratic institutions and campaigns from City Council to Presidential races. Kelly is in her element on set and in the situation room, helping campaigns win at every level. Her sweet spot is ads that reveal a candidate’s true character to voters and speak to their values.
With a keen eye on the latest trends and technologies for communicating a compelling and cohesive narrative, Kelly understands that politics is part of life, not just election season. Realizing how, when and where to talk to Americans about our democracy is what will continue to win for Democrats and keep hope as our north star.
Kelly Gibson has spent much of her free time working to combat gender inequality, from serving on the Running Start Advisory Board sponsoring and training young women to run for office, to working with the American Association of Political Consultants to amplify the input of women on professional panels, boards and conferences. She is also on faculty at the Campaign School at Yale, making sure strong candidates are ready to serve.
Kelly was honored with a Rising Star Award in 2014 by Campaigns & Elections, and was named one of the AAPC’s 40 Under 40 in 2016. She lands a punch on Fox news every now again, because you never know where you will win a vote.
Kelly lives in Takoma Park with her two boys, old lady dog Nancy Gibson, and forever partner Caleb. Originally from Buffalo, she is forever #BillsMafia, and brings that level of table breaking fandom to her kid’s sporting events much to their great embarrassment.
