Hello! My name is Cristy Brusoe and I’ve become known as the PR Ninja. In more technical terms, I’m a Media Relations Specialist and Story Teller with over a decade of experience in the world of Public Relations. I hold a Bachelors in Journalism from UW-River Falls and a Masters in Leadership Education from Winona State.
I got my start in public relations right out of college. Not knowing exactly what I wanted to do career-wise, I landed an internship at a small start-up PR company in Stillwater, MN. Shortly after, I became the Media Relations Manager and led 6-8 client accounts for 7 years. My entrepreneurial spirit caught up with me during my Masters program, and I branched off on my own. I have been consulting and freelancing full-time for over 5 years now.
I grew up in Minnesota and still claim myself as “Minnesotan,” but have called Tampa, Florida my home for the past 3 years. My passions outside of work include animal rescue and fostering, being an avid sports fan, tackling home DIY projects, and teaching as an Adjunct Professor at SNHU.
