Emaleigh Kaithern – Communications Director

A compelling storyteller, Emaleigh arrived at Princeton Strategic Communication by way of The College of New Jersey, but her path to PSC began much earlier. In her youth, she spent her days laying in the grass writing fictional stories, attending fundraising committee meetings for local non-profits and accompanying her mother to small-town political functions.

“When I was in third grade, I watched as my mom found her voice; she wasn’t happy with what was going on in the town that we call home,” says Emaleigh, referring to West Cape May, N.J. “Watching my mom work so passionately for what she believed in created a similar spark in me to help those in need while rewriting the narrative of our greater community.”

While pursuing a business degree, she took courses that increased her knowledge of vulnerable populations, such as the incarcerated, those with limited food choices in urban areas, and families struggling with infertility. She also took on various research assistant positions and a communication studies minor to refine her writing capabilities. Her college writing career culminated in recognition by the New Jersey Communication Association for “Best Undergraduate Paper” in 2014.

Passionate about helping clients find and strengthen their voice to create compelling messaging, Kaithern has assisted in developing a unique brand identity for countless organizations. While her portfolio includes a wealth of renowned hotels, restaurants, and spas throughout Southern New Jersey & Pennsylvania and various state & national organizations, Emaleigh finds working with non-profits and community-based organizations most fulfilling.

Emaleigh’s dedication to providing unparalleled client resources has led her to pursue continuing education courses, including a visit to Facebook headquarters in California to master the latest social media best practices and the Robert McKee Storynomics Seminar in New York City.

When she isn’t writing, you can find Emaleigh toiling in her vegetable garden, perfecting gluten-free recipes in the kitchen, reading on the beach, or teaching & practicing power yoga.
