About the Presenters

Advertising Sales Director
Bird Watcher’s Digest
Kelly Ball is the Advertising Sales Director for Bird Watcher’s Digest, Watching Backyard Birds, Redstart Birding (optics and gear retail company for bird watchers), and Reader Rendezvous Birding Tours. A decade ago, she had an epiphany and realized she didn’t have to wait until retirement to become a birder! Kelly’s previous experience as an editor for a major book publisher, a project manager representing a Fortune 500 client at a boutique ad agency, and as a contract writer—to say nothing of a lifetime affinity for nature and conservation—positioned her well for her role with Bird Watcher’s Digest. In her free time, Kelly enjoys volunteering and fundraising for a local dog shelter, practicing yoga, singing, and birding and exploring her hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
