KPS3 Adds Two Coordinators to Growing Team

KPS3, a full-service marketing and digital communications firm, has hired Anna-Leigh Firth as account coordinator and Logan Schauer as social media + PR coordinator.

A data nerd with a knack for bringing brands to life, Firth is inherently driven to figure out the “why.” She loves collaborating with others to create things that resonate with people far and wide. She will assist in the day-to-day management of client accounts while motivating internal teams to do their best work on time and on budget.

Post-graduation, Anna-Leigh dabbled in both agency and client-side work. She gained industry experience as a public relations intern at Foundry, a digital communications intern at the City of Reno and a brand management intern at The Abbi Agency. From here, she went on to be a social media specialist for The National Judicial College followed by an internet marketing specialist at OCG Creative before finding her home at KPS3. Firth graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, in 2016. She earned her B.A. in Journalism with an emphasis in strategic communications and a minor in philosophy.

Schauer will be handling the day-to-day social and PR needs for our clients. From seeing social media strategies to fruition and creating informative and appealing content to issuing press releases, promoting work, and maintaining a strong social media presence for the KPS3 brand and clients, Schauer’s love of interacting with people on a personal and professional level is perfect for the position.

A graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, Schauer has a Bachelor’s degree in both Spanish and Journalism, with a focus in graphic design, strategic communications and PR. In May of 2021, she graduated from UNR once again, but this time, with her Master’s in Spanish Linguistics and Golden Age Spanish Literature. She has experience teaching foreign languages and also studied abroad in San Sebastián, Spain, in 2017.
