Kam Heslop

Public Comm Specialist


Textiles Complex 2337


Since 2009, Kam has used her web and print writing, social media management, and graphic design skills to inspire key audiences at top-ranked universities, including The Ohio State University and UNC Charlotte, to act. Audiences have been encouraged to give financially, reconnect with their alma maters, and make the most out of their college experiences.

Before joining the North Carolina Textile Foundation, Kam served as the alumni and development communications coordinator at UNC Charlotte. In that role, she served as a liaison between University Communications and University Advancement, which includes Development, Annual Giving, Donor Relations, Planned Giving, and the Alumni Association. Prior to that position, she served as UNC Charlotte’s coordinator of alumni communications — the sole communicator for the university’s Alumni Association.

Prior to her work at UNC Charlotte, she served as a communications coordinator at her alma mater, Ohio State, for eight years. While there, she worked in communications within the College of Education and Human Ecology and the College of Engineering, specifically in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in strategic communication and a master’s degree in public policy and management from The Ohio State University.
