Awakened work.

Hi, I'm Leili Khalessi. I'm a marketing technologist and digital communications director with a passion for mindful leadership. My aim is to help people communicate with joy.


I'm using my superpowers for good at 3fold Communications, an award-winning marketing agency helping bold brands advance the Sacramento region. I recently served as the Director of Communications, Marketing and Development for a national nonprofit called RedRover. I'm also a former board member for The Yoga Seed Collective, a nonprofit yoga studio.

Lately, my inspiration comes from StrengthsFinder, "Leaders Eat Last" by Simon Sinek, "Daring Greatly" by Brene Brown, "The Soul of Leadership" by Deepak Chopra and "The Desire Map" by Danielle LaPorte.

Things that light me up right now: Living with intention (a.k.a. strategic planning). Tranquil tech – technology tools that bring peace to productivity. Sneaking yoga and mindfulness into my workday. Tarot and astrology (forever a hippie at heart). My German shepherd.
