McBroom.LakeLouiseWC2010

Athletic Background:

I was a member of the Canadian Alpine Ski team from years 2007-2011 where I competed on the Europa Cup, Noram Cup and World Cup circuits. My focus was on Super-G and Downhill. My time on the national team was plagued with injuries where I sustained what should have been two career-ending injuries in both 2009 and 2011. Although my recoveries were long and arduous, I managed to persevere and return to competition and perform on the world stage. I also secured myself a scholarship to Montana State University, where I competed on the NCAA circuit and was a member of 3 NCAA National Championships teams.

The years I spent on the National Team and later the Montana State Ski Team set the foundation for my interest in Marketing. A large part of being on a National Team is representing a brand, public speaking, personal branding and communications. I maintained a blog and website (an earlier rendition of kellymcbroom.com) for my years on the National Team and was very adept at keeping followers up to date through Social Media platforms.

I have also been fortunate enough to travel around the globe racing and training in some of the most scenic locations. I have spent extensive time in Europe, North America, Chile, Argentina and New Zealand.
