Twin Cities PR This Week – Dec. 15


I don’t know about you, but WOW, what a busy week! I broke away from work for a bit to celebrate with my MIMA friends Wednesday night at the annual MIMA Holiday Party at Aria. An excellent time as always catching up with old friends and new.

Since I know everyone is eager to get on to the egg nog and yule logs, let’s get right to the latest job changes, promotions, events, new account wins and awards in Twin Cities PR in the last week:

Nice opportunity there–Life Time Fitness is seeking a PR specialist to join its team. Chance to work with one of my very favorite people (and long-time college friend), Natalie Bushaw.
