About Kirsten Voinis
Kirsten Voinis founded K. Voinis Communications in 2002 with a vision to provide public affairs guidance by uniting her passion for and previous experience in politics and journalism. Voinis’ interest in combining the two disciplines stems from a college internship in a U.S. Senate press office.
Voinis draws on communications skills and media relationships developed over more than three decades to raise awareness and understanding of her clients’ issues among the media, the public, policymakers and other target audiences.
Prior to forming K. Voinis Communications, Voinis served as communications director and as a legislative aide for former State Sen. David Sibley, R-Waco. As spokesperson for Sen. Sibley and the Senate Committee on Business and Commerce, she worked with local, state and national media on such complex issues as electric utility restructuring, managed care reform, civil justice reform, telecommunications and economic development. On the political front, Voinis directed communications for two Texas Senate campaigns.
Voinis began her career as a newspaper reporter for the Wichita Falls Times Record News before moving to Austin to cover Texas government for a Capitol news bureau serving five midsized daily newspapers.
Voinis is a native of Arlington, Texas, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism from Texas A&M University. As a strong believer in giving back to the Austin community, she is chair of the Board of Directors of the Austin Diaper Bank and also serves on the Board of Saint Louise House, where she also is a longtime volunteer. She has been a member of the Grants Committee of the Women’s Fund of Central Texas since 2011 and served as committee chair from 2014-2016.
