I'm a Strategy Manager for GREATER MSP, the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Regional Economic Development Partnership. I get to work with a wide variety of cross-sector partners - from local governments and community organizations to Fortune 500 leaders and entrepreneurs. Before that I was at the University of Minnesota earning my MBA and a Master's of Public Policy.
I've worked and consulted for a variety of organizations from large companies to small nonprofits on public affairs campaigns and strategic marketing initiatives. I also used to be an investigative journalist with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with experience at regional and national outlets including time at the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, DC.
I spend a lot of my free time working with civic organizations that try to directly engage and involve more people in local policy issues. I serve on the boards of Conservation Minnesota and FairVote Minnesota and as communications chair for the Citizens League.
I'm at @LewisMinn if you want to connect.
