Cindy Shin is the Founder & CEO of KACIE Strategies.
Cindy brings in over 15 years of experience in media relations, community outreach, and TV news.
Prior to founding KACIE Strategies, Cindy served as Deputy Director of Community Engagement & Outreach for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office. During her 11 year tenure, she was responsible for media relations and community outreach. She organized numerous press conferences and community meetings, successfully 'pitched' countless news stories to local and national media, including the Today Show, Dateline NBC, and 60 Minutes.
Cindy also spearheaded outreach efforts to the ethnic communities of Los Angeles where she successfully formed many partnerships with the diverse communities of Los Angeles including the Thai, Ethiopian, Filipino, Korean, Japanese, Persian, Chinese Communities, and many more. Through these partnerships, she was able to have crime prevention brochures translated into various languages as well as host community town hall meetings with language services in the communities.
Cindy also accompanied the Los Angeles City Attorney on an official trip to Korea (2015) where she worked with the Korean Ministry of Justice and Seoul Western District Prosecutors’ Office on a joint seminar about Child Abuse and Domestic Violence.
Before joining the City Attorney’s Office, Cindy worked as the main anchor and reporter for a local Korean TV news program. As a general assignment reporter, she covered a wide range of stories, including political campaigns, immigration protests, brush fires, and city prosecutions.
Cindy was born in Washington, D.C. and spent the first part of her childhood in Virginia, while her father worked as a TV News Anchor and Washington News Correspondent. When she was 10, her father moved the family back to Seoul, where she spent the next 11 years of her life. Cindy returned to the US for college and made California her 'home' in 2001.
