Associate Consultant


Get to know Karly. 

Karly Van Boxel (@kvanbo95) is an associate consultant at PR 20/20. She joined the agency in May 2019 with a background in public relations, marketing and community engagement. Karly is a 2019 graduate of Kent State University, where she earned a degree in public relations and a minor in marketing.

Karly’s interest in public relations came by chance. While unsure which career path she would pursue during her first few semesters of college, Karly volunteered for a Cleveland organization. There, she was put to work as the PR coordinator, learning the fundamental skills of event planning, advertising, budgeting and working alongside the press team in drafting and publishing press releases. Since then, she’s interned with multiple public relations and marketing agencies, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Canton Museum of Art.

Karly's favorite professional aspect of the marketing industry is that every day is different. As the industry continues to evolve and technologies and consumer behaviors change, working professionals must adapt to and learn how to work with these changes.
