Farewell, KMC!

As I wrap up my internship at KMC, I want to reflect on all the good, the fun, the crazy and all of the things I learned that have prepared me for my job after graduation. In my first week, I knew I would be doing much more than marketing. It just so happened to

It’s days like today that I “Remember the Why”!

My sister recently gave me a book called “Business Boutique – A Woman’s Guide for Making Money Doing What She Loves” by Christy Wright. One of the first things mentioned in the book is to ask yourself Why? Why did I leave my corporate full-time position with a good salary and great benefits 15 years

There’s a List for That!

I’m a list maker. I have a list for everything. There’s my To Do List and my What I Really Have To Do List. And then there’s the Someday I’ll get to This List. There’s a list for gift ideas for my family. A list of things to write about. A list of things to

KMC all grown up

It’s time to break out those black plastic combs in honor of school picture days! We all have our favorite memories of school pictures — good and bad. The KMC team has changed just a bit from our own school picture days. Check out our first grade-era pics!

Hint: some employees will have more than one!

I’m passionate about our strong public school system – and that’s why it doesn’t feel like work to work for a client like the Columbia Public Schools Foundation (CPSF).

How travel abroad elevates my creativity at home

Not so long ago, I was a freshman Journalism student at MU. I had big plans: I was going to travel the world, writing stories as an international correspondent for some big news agency. A few years later, I switched tracks from journalism to advertising—still with plans to exit the Midwest as soon as possible.

Giving back because we can

At this time of year, when things are busy and schedules are crazy, it’s easy to lose sight of those things that are important to us. KMC has a rich history of working with several of our community’s nonprofit organizations, from the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Missouri to the Columbia Public Schools Foundation to Welcome

Why I left my corporate job and started my own marketing communications agency

How did Knorr Marketing Communications, aka KMC, come about? It’s simple really. My husband and I found ourselves stretched thin with dual careers requiring extensive hours and three young kids (ages 6, 3 and 1). We were a train wreck waiting to happen. It really became apparent one Sunday afternoon after I returned home from
