Originally from Boynton Beach, Florida, Kelsie Weekes earned her Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of South Carolina and worked as a television producer at WIS 10, a local television/news affiliate located in Columbia, SC. At WIS 10, Kelsie helped produce the 5pm news broadcasts for two years, writing all of the dialogue for the news anchors.
Eventually, Kelsie moved back home to South Florida and was hired as a producer by WPTV in West Palm Beach. Kelsie was ecstatic about the hire because, as she explained, WPTV was “the station I grew up watching my whole life.” Although WPTV was a dream job for Kelsie, the long, grinding hours of the news business took its toll.
Looking to make a change, Kelsie began working at FAU as a Media Relations Manager and also enrolled in the university's PMBA / Sport Management program. The sports wrinkle allowed Kelsie to fuse another of her passions - golf.
All in all, Kelsie aspires for a career that combines her various talents and experiences - journalism, communications, business and sports.
Kelsie graduates in December 2017, and FAU wishes her continued success in all of her future endeavors!
