About

Lindy Kyzer is a professional communicator with a social savvy. Kyzer grew up in Malvern, Ia. and credits her small town midwestern roots with giving her the framework to work in public affairs. In a small town, you can’t forget the value of a hand shake, a phone call, and a personal connection.

Kyzer graduated from Washington, D.C.’s George Washington University with a degree in International Affairs with a concentration in Conflict and Security and a minor in Creative Writing. Throughout her college career she worked in offices across the D.C. area, including Capitol Hill and major political organizations. Immediately following college she began work as the National Field Director at the College Republican National Committee, managing a field staff of nearly fifty and deploying field representatives to all fifty states.

Following the 2006 campaign she accepted a position with the Department of the Army as a public affairs specialist, working at Fort Eustis, Va. and then settling at the Pentagon in a media relations position. Kyzer developed robust media contacts and provided media outreach and support for major events and program launches within the Pentagon.

Arriving at the Pentagon at a time when there was little thought to “new” media, Kyzer launched the U.S. Army into the social media space, developing the Army’s social media presence and strategy and spearheading the education of Army leaders on social media topics. Highlights of her time with the Army included developing social media training for the Army Senior Leader Development Program for the Army’s most senior general officers, and providing social media training to over 1,000 incoming commanders at the Army’s Pre-Command Course for incoming battalion and brigade commanders at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Kyzer left the Army in July of 2010 and is currently working as the editor of ClearanceJobs.com. She lives in Arlington, Va. with her husband, Jason, their cat, and the world’s best toddler. She’s blessed beyond measure.
