About

My name is Kelsey Parsons and this is my website (obviously). Here you can check out my published work, my professional experience, my 20-something musings, and other bits of my life.

I’m passionate about writing, music, experiencing new things, and communicating creatively.

I’ve worked for various national and international organizations and my writing has appeared in the Vancouver Sun, Golf Canada Magazine, The Globe and Mail, and many more online and print publications.

I used to live in Ghana, where I worked as a Communications Officer for an amazing organization called Women in Law and Development in Africa, and I loved it. 

I now live in New York City, which was a lifelong dream, and work as a Communications Officer at yet another awesome nonprofit called Rehabilitation International

I’m obsessed with everything digital, and I spend a lot of time on the Internet.

I’ve acted in a Ghanaian soap opera, skydived, helped rescue dogs from floods in Thailand, camped with Maasai warriors, bungee jumped, had malaria, scuba dived the Great Barrier Reef, and experienced having my hotel room broken into by a large baboon.

I’m a citizen of both the United States and Canada.

I really, really like animals. In Thailand, I volunteered at the Elephant Nature Foundation, which supports elephants and educates the public about their plight. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

In August 2011, I departed on a  “RTW” (round-the-world) trip that lasted four months. To read more about that trip, check out the RTW Category of this site. I also wrote a travel blog for the Oakville Beaver newspaper about that trip.

I like to volunteer and fundraise for causes I believe in, and I’ve contributed my skills to various causes including: organ donation, animal rescue, cancer research, women’s rights, and girl’s education.

That sums it up. Thanks for reading!
