Lindsay Alston ’13: Account Executive at Edelman Chicago
I work within the Food & Nutrition practice at FleishmanHillard, which is a public relations agency. My main clients are Quaker and PepsiCo North America Nutrition. I’ve always been passionate about brand story telling and joined the Fleishman team when they were starting to expand this new practice given my passion and experience within the food industry, having worked on previous clients such as Barilla, Butterball and Jimmy John’s at Edelman.
I love helping brands tell their stories and particularly how the field of nutrition has so many complexities and potential stories and story tellers.
Colby helped me think critically and strategically while also understanding how to tell a compelling story. All of these skills I’ve been able to take with me into my career as a public relations professional (or what I like to call, the profession of telling brand’s stories).
