Life is short. Fit in as much as you can while you can.

Kristan Sheppeard


My road in life took a while to figure out.
I was born and raised in San Diego, California.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a minor in Spanish from the University of San Diego.
After college, I started my career as an elementary school teacher.
I taught for a few years but took a step away to be a stay-at-home mom when my kids were born.
When my kids got older, I slowly made my way back into the working world and tried out different industries, including nonprofits, tourism, and hospitality.
Along the way, I moved to Yuma, Arizona.
In 2011, I started my own marketing and public relations firm called Limelight Creative Group.
In addition to my marketing firm, I decided to get my real estate license to make some supplemental income while opening another avenue to work with people.
Keep following my journey



I own a full-service marketing and public relations firm.
