Our Story

We see the passion and enthusiasm of entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders when they talk about their vision and the impact of their services or products in their communities. We launched Olive&Root Communications to help them translate that same vision-casting enthusiasm into written form. We love seeing the connections formed through strong, people-first messaging and the ways story brings people together. 

Meet Our Founder, Kristyn

Growing up, founder Kristyn DeNooyer would handwrite short stories on notebook paper and share them with her friends every week. She now holds a B.S. in English and Nonprofit Communications, and brings eight years of experience as a Communications Specialist in freelance and nonprofit settings.

When not putting pen to paper, Kristyn can be found hosting dinner parties and frequenting local businesses.
