NBG ANNOUNCES NEW PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER
Kelly Gaita, former co-host of The Hampton Roads Show, plants roots
NORFOLK, VA. (October 2010) -- It is with great delight that Norfolk Botanical Garden (NBG) welcomes Kelly Gaita as their new Public Relations Manager. When former PR Manager Amy Dagnall announced her resignation earlier this year, NBG recognized the huge void that would need to be filled. Kelly comes to the Garden with a variety of experiences that is the perfect antidote to Amy’s departure.
With experience in television as the first ever Face of FOX43 and then co-host of The Hampton Roads show, Kelly makes a wonderful spokesperson for the Garden. Kelly also has a background in marketing as a former Marketing Director for Chick-fil-A. Whether she’s lighting up the camera, interacting with the public, working with clients & guests, or navigating the world of social media, Kelly brings fresh perspective to the team and is a great addition to the Garden and the community
Our Garden has grown from humble beginnings as a WPA project to an 155-acre garden filled with thousands of plants. More than thirty themed gardens are spread across site. Some gardens focus on a single plant (camellias, hydrangeas, roses), others look at a plant from a specific region (Japan, Virginia), while others provide homeowners with great ideas and or new plants to use in their own garden.
