Kymberlie Adams has worked in the animal welfare field for over 15 years. In her current role as the Director of Social Media at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), she combines her love of writing with her campaign experience to develop, implement and track social marketing strategies with a focus on brand awareness, lead generation and fundraising.
Kymberlie began her career in California working as a campaign strategist for the Animal Protection Institute, where she focused her efforts on helping animals exploited for entertainment, including circuses, rodeos and aquarium theme parks. She also spent time living in Texas working as the Investigative Coordinator for Born Free USA, where she focused on researching the living conditions of primates housed on breeding facilities and used in medical research and testing facilities. Upon moving back to her home state of New York, she worked as the Regional Correspondent for Friends of Animals where she helped drive the campaign calling for an end to Canada’s notorious seal hunt.
Directly prior to joining the ASPCA, Kymberlie served three years as the Managing Editor of Satya Magazine, a publication focusing on animal welfare, feminism and international issues of social justice. She conducted numerous interviews with thought leaders and activists, including former Afghan Parliamentarian, Malalai Joya, leading animal welfare philosopher, Tom Regan, and the indigenous Samburu matriarch of the all-women village Umoja in Kenya, Rebecca Lolosoli.
A published writer, Kymberlie’s work has most recently been featured in Speaking Up for Animals: An Anthology of Women's Voices. She currently resides in New York City with her wife, Kristen, and their two rescued cats.Member Directory
