In the latest installment of our Columbus Creatives: A Day in the Life series, we talk with Kelsea Wiggins, social media manager and blogger.
Hi. I’m Kelsea Wiggins. I’m a 25 year old digital and Columbus native. I was born on the Southeast side of Columbus but have called Grandview home for a couple of years now. I attended a very small, private, Christian school in Groveport called Madison Christian and attended the University of Kentucky. My creative outlet (and for the past few years, the way I earn a living) is writing. I like to tell people that writing isn’t a hobby of mine, but an addiction. It's the only way I know how to process life.
Fun fact about me, I need music playing to function. Whether it’s getting out of bed, showering, hunkering down on my work as a Social Media Manager for Charleys, or cleaning the house. I have to have music. I start my day dancing to whichever Spotify playlist I’m into that day while getting ready. Once I’m out the door I grab an XL dark roast with a shot of espresso from Tim Hortons and brave 315.
The envy of a lot of my friends, I spend my entire day on Social Media. My afternoon can be anything from meetings, to running to a restaurant to get content, to sending gifs to fans on Twitter. Every day is a new adventure. I am known to overuse delivery apps, however. You can probably hang your hat on a random Jimmy Johns, UberEats, Amazon Prime or Postmates delivery person dropping something off for me. #SorryNotSorry
When 6pm comes I am usually en route to happy hour with the girls or recent college grads that want to network, an event for The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio, Grandview to catch a The Wonder Jam workshop, or my cute little townhouse to plop on my bunny slippers and sing 90’s R&B to my wonderful boyfriend while he mans the grill.
