Queijo is passionate about two things: higher-ed marketing and technology. She’s been called the “go-to college visit person” for blending both.

SmartCollegeVisit.com has been listed in the Top 100 education advice blogs and as one of the top 5 college visit sites. Her popular weekly Twitter chat, “CampusChat”, provides education experts, parents, and students with a forum for insightful interaction. A Virginia Tech Alumnus, Kelly held the position of Undergraduate Admissions Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator for Virginia Tech from 1993-2000. She is the former Director of i-Recruitment Services for Carnegie Communications and Internet Sales Manager for CollegeNET, both of which provide web-based services to college admissions offices. An award winning writer and marketing campaign developer, Kelly is the 2010 VT Knowledgeworks Entrepreneurial Summit award winner for best business concept.

Personal note: As a business woman, publisher, and writer, I value all who choose to work with me on creating and growing this site. I am fortunate to know many talented artists, writers, thought-leaders, marketers and social media gurus and greatly appreciate the contributions they have made and continue to make to SmartCollegeVisit.
