Who is Social stamina?
KELLY CRAIG | sOCIAL mEDIA sPECIALIST
"The only investment guaranteed to appreciate is the time and energy you invest in yourself.”
- Kelly Craig
A long long time ago, at the origination of social media, Kelly was fearful of going social since she didn't have a lot of friends, at the time. She was an awkward high school student who had the dream of becoming a journalist. Kelly had seven internships throughout college and negotiated an opportunity to put her storytelling skills to work for a local company. After that, the rest is history!
One client quickly became two. Two became five. Five became fifteen. Through five years of diligent work, creativity, blood, sweat and tears Social Stamina has clientele from across every time zone in the country!
In addition to building the Social Stamina team, Kelly is most proud of being an Aunt and the marathons that she has finished. When she is not inspiring others and being a social media guru, Kelly enjoys international travel (she has been to SIX continents), extreme sports and spending time with all of her many friends (oh, how times have changed since high school).

He’s a native of Asbury Park, NJ and enjoys being surrounded by its rich art and music culture. Aside from design, he spends his time playing bass guitar and acting in community theater productions.
