Selby McRae Graepel joined MP&F in 2014 as an assistant account executive. Born and raised in Jackson, Miss., Selby ventured to upstate New York to attend Hamilton College. She earned a Bachelor of Arts dual degree in English literature and dance.
At MP&F, her clients have included the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps program, the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE), Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, the U.S. Marine Corps’ Marine Week and Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage. In addition to her client work, Selby co-leads MP&F’s mentor program for entry-level staffers.
Selby is a member of the Nashville Junior League and also volunteers with the Sexual Assault Center as an advocate for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. You may often find her adventuring outside on hikes and trails, testing new recipes in the kitchen, loving all things Scottish, and recommending the next book you need to read.
After graduating from Hamilton College with honors, Selby moved to New York City to attend the Columbia Publishing Course. She then began working in the marketing department at Penguin Random House, where she worked on national campaigns, developed social media strategies, and organized consumer outreach for the fiction and nonfiction lists.
