As a part of the Digital PR Team, I focus on media relations and outreach! I get to take the valuable information our team produces and connect with journalists, writers, and producers to turn it into informative stories and inbound media coverage for our clients.
I love to read about history. I love all time periods, but my favorite to read and learn about will always be World War II! So far, I have been able to see the USS Alabama and the National WWII Museum! Aside from history, staying active, traveling, and being with family! I also love to be outside. I’ve lived in the land of 10,000 lakes, in the great planes of South Dakota and now on the beach! I have a huge appreciation for nature and hope to eventually live in the mountains!
I love this work because it allows me to utilize my love or writing while also exercising my create bone by taking information and translating that into catchy, newsworthy pitches. I’ve worked in just about every position in a newsroom starting when I was 18. I love incorporating my experience as a local journalist and applying it to the outreach I now get to do for Digital Third Coast! I enjoy the feeling of writing an attention-grabbing pitch that takes off with success and gains tremendous coverage!
Something that people don’t know about me is that my family started a non-profit foundation in honor of my brother, Curtis. He died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition in 2018 when he was 18 years old. Now, the Curtis LeMair Legacy Foundation aims to promote awareness of sudden cardiac death in young athletes, change legislation, along with raising money for scholarships for high school students in the Midwest.
I’m extremely proud of my family and the work that’s been done for the foundation.
