Gregg Elliott is an “accidental business woman.” She never aspired to a business of her own, but has been a successful solopreneur since 2009, when she launched K Gregg Consulting (www.kgreggconsulting.com). Her niche is to provide communications in support of biodiversity, working lands, climate change adaptation, habitat and wildlife management, conservation science, and green programs for a variety of nonprofits and agencies.
Much to her mingled pride and astonishment, Gregg’s business and communications expertise have grown in tandem since establishing K Gregg Consulting. Going independent has given Gregg so much flexibility to organize her day, such great joy in her work, and so many opportunities to meet and collaborate with great people and organizations that she thought if there’s a chance others could benefit from her experience, she needed to share it. (The K stands for Karen, but she was raised as Gregg!)
When she’s not working, she’s hiking with the dog, traveling with her daughter, or dancing.
