Kristy Gillentine (KrisGillentine) is Vice President of Public Engagement for Drive West Communications. She initially came on my radar after her starting of a new Twitterchat, #ChatSnap and was later referred to me by podcast alum Chris McManamy. 

What makes Kristy unique is her strong journalistic background across every sort of medium possible. Print, broadcast, you name it, she's done it! Her drive and journalistic instinct is the reasons she's been so successful - as you'll hear in this week's episode! 

Join me this week for a conversation with Kristy Gillentine

This Week on Why I Social, Kristy and I discuss:

  • What is Kristy's family connection to journalism
  • How she started #ChatSnap
  • The difference between writing for journalism, broadcast and social media

And of course, Why Does He Social?!
