IKEA

Welcome to Fishers, IKEA!

This week our community celebrated one of the biggest stories to hit in 2015, the addition of the first Indianapolis-are IKEA store, in Fishers! And for an PR professional, it was a pinch yourself kind of moment! I mean, outside of the fact that Fishers has been home for me since I was in diapers, and is my workplace, it’s IKEA, and their ground breaking (as you’d imagine) did not disappoint.

Team Fishers – Empowering employees & creating advocates

Last November I was able to attend the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) International Conference in Atlanta.

My mind wondered and I remember hoping that none of our faculty had passed away, and that’s when he broke the news that two planes had flown into the World Trade Center while we were taking our tests. Our school would go on lockdown and resources would be available for students/staff as needed. Continue reading

Local vibes are my favorite.

I love local. I’m not sure if it’s because I work on the corporate side with the businesses in our community, or if it’s that I really admire small business owners. So it should come as now surprise that rain or shine, each Saturday morning while it’s running I’m at the #FishersFarmersMarket! With live entertainment, roughly 50 vendors and places to enjoy a picnic lunch, it’s a great way for me to knock out my grocery shopping without hearing Science Kid Caiden complain it’s taking too long!
