Kristen Swan Kurtz
A perfectionist, big-thinker and passion for the creative, Kristen is a seasoned PR pro with more than 15 years developing and executing integrated PR and marketing campaigns. Kristen handles many of SRA’s key consumer and non-profit accounts, serving clients through strong media relations, influencer relationships, social media and special events. Kristen also specializes in minimizing problematic client issues within the press and social media.
Kristen joined SRA in 2006, after years spent handling the public relations for the diamond industry on behalf of DeBeers, through the entertainment and celebrity world, focusing on seeding diamond trends via entertainers, large scale events and consumer media relations. If you bought non-engagement diamond jewelry in the early 2000’s, blame her.
Kristen graduated from the University of Hartford with a B.A. in Communications with a focus in Public Relations.
When not speaking to top tier media (and sometimes, in tandem), Kristen moonlights as a competitive obstacle course racer and two-time OCR World Championship competitor. Kristen is also a mom of two young, active boys, which in itself, deserves a medal.
