Carlee Smith

Account Assistant

Carlee developed a passion for writing as a child and could most often be found reading or writing stories or poems. As she entered high school, she thought a career in journalism would be the right choice for her. However, after taking classes in public relations, advertising and social media in college, she realized the field of communications was her true calling.

Carlee joined Obsidian as an intern in the summer of 2017. By spring 2018, her hard work earned her an advanced internship while she finished her bachelor’s degree at Arkansas State University, and by summer, she was promoted to a full-time position at the firm. As Obsidian’s newest team member, she is excited to dive further into the fast-paced world of public relations. 

In Carlee’s role, she assists Obsidian account managers in a variety of client industries, including professional services, arts and entertainment, hospitality, education and nonprofit.

Growing up in the Greater Memphis Area, Carlee’s love for the Bluff City has grown with her. She loves exploring the city, trying new restaurants and cheering on the Grizzlies. In her free time, she can be found binge-watching Netflix, spending time with friends and family or listening to music (whether that be on Spotify or at a concert).
