Emily S. Kelchen
Principal - Kelchen Consulting
Emily S. Kelchen founded Kelchen Consulting after realizing the free time she spent building websites and experimenting with social media-driven marketing and advocacy was much more fun than working as a traditional lobbyist. As a natural-born community builder and storyteller, Emily has a knack for helping businesses and organizations figure out who their target audience is and how to best connect with them. She uses these insights to help lawyers, interest groups, and community organizations find new clients, supporters, and members, and advance their causes. Emily is a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin’s communications committee and serves as the Secretary of its Nonresident Lawyers Division. She is a former New Jersey State Bar Association Trustee, and past Chair of the association’s Young Lawyer Division. Emily graduated from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO, with a degree in political science, and earned her J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School in Madison, WI. She recently relocated to the Knoxville, TN area after living in New Jersey for nearly a decade.
