“As a student at Syracuse University, Kelsey Davis was already landing video gigs with companies like Coca-Cola, Land Rover and Conde Nast,” reads the opening of a recent Adweek article by Nick Gardner about Kelsey Davis, ’19 (Newhouse) and G ’20 (Whitman). “She quickly realized how difficult it was to be a creative freelancer in a high-intensity, academic environment and succeed at both.
