Great marketing is always the product of collaboration. Whether it’s a banner ad, a page on a website or a complete media campaign, how we coordinate as an agency ultimately determines the quality of the end product.

STORY

Lynne’s storytelling career began before studying marketing and psychology at the University of Missouri, and before working in publishing in Los Angeles and Missoula. It started in preschool, when she’d stand like Homer among a crowd of stuffed animals and tell tales of adventure to her captivated, if inanimate, audience. Her appreciation of the importance of telling stories in a captivating fashion has only grown throughout her adult career.

 

From the beaches of Los Angeles to the peaks around Missoula, Lynne has worn a variety of hats, from HR manager to general manager to publisher. Along the way she mastered the logistics that enable and enhance emotional connections between audience and information. The experience she gained in the constant sprint of the publishing world equipped her to thrive here at PartnersCreative, where every day presents a new challenge and a new story to tell.

 

Coordinating a team with not only a mix of creative approaches but also technological training requires a publisher’s know-how. Lynne’s drive and understanding of operations have proven invaluable as we have taken on increasingly complex projects for our clients. Lynne keeps client work moving out the door and into the world — helping to ensure that their stories are seen and heard by the audiences they are meant for.

CONVERSATION STARTERS

Lynne’s happy to share everything that’s wonderful about spending time in historic Philipsburg. (Hint: That list doesn’t include the “joys” of working on a 125-year-old fixer upper.)

 

Ask her about her (former) pet black widow. And the hundreds that followed. We dare you.

 

Do you prefer your toilet paper to roll over or under? No topic is too mundane for a lively debate with Lynne.
