My name is Jacqueline Keidel, and I am a media and public relations professional currently working with Donor Network of Arizona, the state's federally designated, nonprofit organ procurement organization.
I moved to Arizona in 2012 after completing my MBA at Marquette University in Milwaukee. Though I have always been "the creative type," my MBA gives me the ability to make decisions and create communication strategies with excellent business acumen.
In two years with DNA, I have earned more than 110 media hits for the organization. I direct sponsorship of and resulting publicity for Donate Life NASCAR driver, Joey Gase, lead our biannual newsletter, The Connection, and am the co-creator of copy and content for DNA's two websites (DNAZ.org and DonateLifeAZ.org).
I recently worked with the Arizona Cardinals to record a message with quarterback and tissue recipient, Carson Palmer, promoting the importance of organ and tissue donation.
I have a soft spot for dogs (especially my two rescues!), enjoy every chance to practice my Spanish, crave a good challenge and am always searching for opportunities to learn and grow.
