Anne has worked with a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of projects – from small publicity jobs to large-scale public relations campaigns. She takes the time to understand clients’ goals, needs and expectations, and develops and implements plans to generate greater understanding, visibility and support.
Prior to starting AQUA Public Relations in 1987, Anne was senior public relations associate at Minnesota Mutual (now Minnesota Life) where she was responsible for its media relations and product publicity program. Before that, she was director of public relations at Sister Kenny Institute, and managed media relations for Abbott Northwestern Hospital.
Anne received a degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and despite living in Minnesota since graduation she is an avowed Badger. She's also a Hennepin County Certified Master Recycler/Composter!
Anne enjoys spending time with her husband and visiting their four daughters, traveling as much as she can, cabin camping in Minnesota State Parks, cooking and entertaining, trying different foods and wines, attending theater, music and arts events, watching movies and reading.
At AQUA Public Relations, there is no B-Team. Depending on the project parameters, Anne will put together a team of experienced professionals to ensure that clients get the expertise and high-quality results they need. With a network of proven partners and consultants – from award-winning graphic designers to savvy social media specialists to top-notch special event planners – clients receive senior-level attention 100% of the time.
