Joyce McKinney serves as Vice President for KQ Communications and leads the firm’s Atlanta office. She is an experienced and award-winning communicator, PR professional, community engagement officer and creative thought partner. Her background includes successful programs and projects with government agencies, non-profit organizations and major corporations including MGM Resorts and Hilton Hotels Corporation where she led the communication and community outreach efforts for both corporate offices.
Joyce joined KQ in 2014 as a senior account executive after graduating with honors from the University of Memphis. Her attention to client needs and ability to find creative needles in seemingly bland haystacks aided in her progression from senior account executive to VP. In her current role, she successfully manages client projects with a focus on strategic communications and storytelling. She is a person with people at heart.
She loves giving back and can often be found doing so with various community initiatives and especially through her church, The Faith Center in Tucker, GA. With 10 siblings, 27 nieces and nephews and two godchildren, it is no wonder she is an expert communicator. Although Joyce is a gifted singer who has performed before former presidents, international leaders and even Oprah, she enjoys spending time with family and friends and making space for the next generation of communicators!
