We are excited to welcome a new member to the team: Aubreigh Kennedy, advertising sales executive. She is our new representative in the community and the person to contact for advertising opportunities and sponsorships in The LakelanderWH magazine, and for digital advertising with thelakelander.com.

Aubreigh was born and raised in Lakeland. Part of her family has been rooted in Polk County for over 100 years and the other half has been in Lakeland for just short of 50 years. She met her husband, Chad Kennedy, before graduating from Lakeland Christian School in 2010. They got married in 2017, and they have consistently attended Victory Church since childhood.

Aubreigh has a background in magazine advertising, majoring in business management at Polk State College and working for Tampa city magazines for nearly five years. She’s honored to represent her hometown and grow the community through advanced marketing efforts and strategies to help local businesses succeed.

“I’m so happy to be back in Lakeland full time and to be part of a community that I’ve always loved. Lakeland is most unique in that it offers a rare and unusual sense of belonging you wouldn’t expect to find in a city of 100,000. The eagerness to support local businesses and the overall atmosphere of Lakeland and Winter Haven are inspiring. I’m looking forward to meeting each and every one of you who make up the best of these cities and tailoring a plan to help your business be successful in this warm and welcoming community.”
