As a public relations professional with more than 20 years of industry experience, it’s rare to meet a consultant/freelance team that has skills matching those of Kelsey Duckett and Sadina Zaccari.
Kelsey is a former journalist and a Columbia College Chicago M.A. graduate; her connections – and intuitive understanding of the journalist/producer mindset – are invaluable. For the last three years, Kelsey’s team has provided my clients with national and local coverage easily rivaling what top national firms could provide when assigned to support my efforts.
At the recent Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, Kelsey and Sadina arranged both live and taped interviews with every local TV network as well as national TV including The Today Show and ESPN. She managed the processes from start to finish, allowing me to focus on my priorities. In my 19+ years managing PR activities for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race – being provided with support from national, award-winning PR firms, I’ve never had such comprehensive support and undeniably exceptional media results.
I continue to recommend her team to clients and bring them into my mix whenever possible – especially when I am desperately in need of that key coverage to hit the ball out of the park.

Congratulations on a job well done at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. For all the years I have worked with various people in the Pro/Celebrity compound, bare none, you have done the best, most fantastic job.
It was so great to work with such a competent, charismatic, ambitious person who is understanding, and gets things done in a very expedient manner.
Kelsey’s interest and great knowledge of motor sports and racing, as well as her pure talent in Media Relations, are unbelievable. She would be a major asset to anyone in the motor racing business.
