Chief Business Development Officer
Kelli McMinn is a co-managing director at The Living Abroad Guide. She is the local half of the guide's international managing team. Currently she tutors/teaches, provides training thorough her company Communicate and makes her way around Portugal when time permits.
She has an academic background in Journalism and International Business and she has lived and worked in both Washington DC and Lisbon. Her 14 plus years of professional experience is in communications, training, teaching/tutoring and business management. She has routinely interacted with CEOs, directors and senior management teams as well as non corporate entities like vendors, other entrepreneurs and customers over the years.
Her entrepreneurial pursuits have included a beauty salon, a language school, and her own clothing line. It was in these "formative" years that she had her introductions into the Portuguese business arena. From these she has gained invaluable experience and clout in the professional world.
Kelli’s personal interests are in travel, family and freestyle living, afforded her in Portugal. She values all that she has learned and is confident that through this project she can impart that joy and knowledge to others, assisting them as they settle into life in Portugal.
