The female dynamo known to most as Kirsten L. King is proof that big things can come in small packages. Raised in Geneva GA, the single mother of two had to learn at a young age how to manage a lot with just a little. Kirsten graduated from Columbus Technical College as a Certified Customer Service Representative and then went on to complete her Bachelors from the University of Phoenix in Business Management. Kirsten is currently pursuing her Masters of Business from the Strayer University: Jack Welch Management Institute. She formed her own company D30 Marketing & Promotions, LLC formerly known as D30 Entertainment to assist in providing coaching, consulting & social media marketing services to entrepreneurs, small business owners and corporations.
That endeavor lead to a career in the radio industry and Kirsten is currently the CEO of not only D30 Marketing & Promotions, LLC. King is not only a successful business woman but a well known pillar in the community of Columbus, Georgia and surrounding areas. Having young children of her own, Kirsten saw a need for more mentoring and educational programs for preteens and teens. So with just a notepad and her drive, Kirsten developed her nonprofit organization “When I Grow Up”, that teaches kids leadership, life skills, career choice opportunities, and standard etiquette. When I Grow Up brings in various community leaders and role models to show the children what is possible for their future. Along with, When I Grow Up and her D30 brand, Kirsten hosts an annual Mother/Son dance & Single Mothers Brunch for the community at large. Balancing business and motherhood inspired Kirsten to publish her first book “The Diary of a Singlemom-preneur” adding author to her list of accomplishments.
