Kelsey Helstowski, CTA

National Sales Manager
aka Connection Sparker

Kelsey spends her time touting Grand Rapids as the best destination for religious, fraternal, government, military and agricultural meetings. She sparks connections with meeting planners and attendees in West Michigan and across the country to spread the word about our super-cool city and generate bookings.

Kelsey’s success in sales was foreshadowed when she won a crawling competition at age 7 months. That competitive spirit and her enthusiasm about Grand Rapids have helped us continue to set new performance records, year after year.

Bio Bits:

  • Recommends Madcap Coffee Company’s Café Miel for a winter drink, Vander Mill’s Vandy Session Cider in summer
  • Praises the walkability and easy navigation of the city’s downtown
  • Her favorite travel companions are her husband Jeff and their two daughters, who love Disney World

Kelsey first encountered Experience Grand Rapids as a volunteer when we hosted RCMA 2009, the annual convention of the Religious Conference Management Association. She was “ecstatic” to be part of the staff when we attended RCMA in 2018.
