Senior Account Manager
Haley McKey has been a professional communicator for nearly a decade. She is fascinated by the science and art of storytelling, and by how communication can lead to progressive change.
At Spitfire, Haley works on a diverse range of focus areas, including contraceptive access, climate change, energy policy, transportation policy, and ocean health. She provides strategic counsel to organizations and advocates on everything from messaging to media strategy, with a particular focus on communications planning and implementation.
In her previous role at Defenders of Wildlife, Haley created national communication strategies for protecting national monuments, defending the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and keeping harmful anti-environmental riders out of must-pass legislation like the Interior spending bill and the National Defense Authorization Act. Haley created social media advertising campaigns and trained Defenders spokespeople for radio and on-camera interviews. She takes pride in her ability to work collaboratively with a variety of partners, from Hill staff to local advocates, to get results.
As an artist and nature enthusiast, Haley brings her eye for aesthetics to her work at Spitfire – from advising clients on material design to drawing the perfect birthday card for a colleague.
