After working 16 years in the healthcare space, Katie Kissal created Kissal Communications, LLC, where she now specializes in well organized, streamlined and high impact communications. With an accumulated 24 years of communications experience, Kissal understands the needs of so many businesses across multiple industries. She uses that knowledge to help her clients establish and accomplish goals to reach their target audience and grow their business.

“I believe in myself,” she says. “I believe in my ideas and ability to create winning situations for clients. I love to brainstorm and come up with customized strategies that best fit my client in their marketplace and then create the content and tools to support those ideas. With more than two decades as a communications professional, I've seen what works, what doesn't and how to find the right way to put a spotlight on my clients. I love being creative and bringing people and their businesses together.”


The Alexandria business community—especially small business—is such a powerhouse. The support they give each other and the action they take daily to create a constant buzz around Alexandria is so impressive. I am excited not only to be amongst them but also available to help them thrive even more with communications and public relations support."

A passionate supporter of other business owners in the community, Kissal is especially passionate about supporting other women—particularly in being their own health advocates. “Healthcare is important to me, but I know [it] can be hard to understand or how it impacts you,” she says. “My expertise of translating complex information into easily understood messages, my personal navigation of the healthcare system and my desire to uplift all women motivate me to support GO RED. Nothing is more formidable than a movement to help women by women.”
