Tennessee Wildlife Federation is expanding its reach again with the addition of Emily McKinley as its media manager.
McKinley will support statewide communications of the organization’s mission and initiatives, including conservation, youth engagement, research, and advocacy. In this role, she will drive growth of these programs, enhance development efforts, and improve engagement with the Federation’s many audiences through traditional media and digital platforms.
McKinley is a nonprofit and communications veteran who served most recently as a consultant for Family Voices Indiana. She specializes in content creation and management, volunteer engagement, and donor cultivation. In her previous roles, McKinley successfully engaged diverse audiences of community members and stakeholders; local, state, and federal legislators; healthcare professionals; and military leadership and families.
“Emily is an incredible addition to Tennessee Wildlife Federation who puts us in the strongest position in the organization’s history to be a voice for Tennesseans who value wildlife and the outdoors,” said Kendall McCarter, chief development officer of Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “Her experience will allow us to better engage sportsmen and women and continue to advance wildlife conservation, as we have for seven decades.”
In addition to promoting the Federation’s current work, McKinley hopes to build on its programs and 70-year legacy to create greater awareness of Tennessee’s abundant wildlife and natural resources. McKinley enjoys escaping to the mountains and hiking with her family. She is a graduate of Butler University in Indianapolis.
