Kristian Connolly

Digital Media Specialist

As the Digital Media Specialist, Kristian helps maintain and update content across the organization’s website, and manages email communications to members regarding advocacy and legislative activity in support of animals.

Kristian holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Binghamton University. His career in animal protection began with the Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Legislative Fund in Washington, DC, where he managed digital communications focused on legislative and political advocacy. Outside of working on behalf of animals, Kristian spent more than a decade as a digital content editor and producer for a professional sports league and its franchises. While having millions of eyeballs on his work on a daily basis was its own kind of thrill, Kristian is very grateful to again be putting his time, energy and focus toward helping billions of animals each day.

Kristian lives with his wife, daughter, senior cat, and books in central Vermont, where if he’s not daydreaming outdoors, he’s probably daydreaming about being outdoors.
