Kelley Haggert

Communications Consultant – Chicago, Illinois

Kelley is a strategic content and communications consultant for Horizon Leader Group (HLG).

She brings extensive executive and crisis communications, PR, and social media experience to the team, along with deep knowledge of building/rebuilding brands and thought leadership profiles across for profit, nonprofit, and start up organizations.

As a former world-class athlete — a two-time Junior National Champ and a member of Canada’s National Rhythmic Gymnastics team for six years – Kelley was a student-athlete and spokesperson for Sport Seneca, Canada’s first sports school. She is passionate about helping athletes and coaches establish a clear vision and narrative to successfully navigate career transitions and opportunities. Now recovered from a broken back and two spinal fusion surgeries, she understands what it takes to adapt, redefine, and overcome.
