Kelly Ryan Kegans


The daughter of an Air Force pilot, Kelly is used to moving frequently. But she didn’t have to travel far to join the Mpls.St.Paul staff, having most recently led the Better Homes and Gardens Home Design staff, which is based in Des Moines. Before that, Kelly was accustomed to the warmer climes of the south and saying “hey, y’all” when she was a reporter for several Texas-based magazines and daily newspapers, including The Dallas Morning News. Kelly brings with her extensive experience producing vibrant visual story packages and leading talented editorial teams in creating award-winning content that engages, inspires, and informs.
