Minneapolis Northwest Insider's Guide - Day Tripping

As a local lifestyle expert and resident of Maple Grove, I was tapped by MSP Communications to write the Minneapolis Northwest Insider's Guide's "Day Tripping" article, the issue's main feature highlighting the area's hottest spots to go for food, family fun, grownup getaways, outdoor adventures and retail therapy. This was a special section in Mpls.St.Paul Magazine's May 2019 issue.

The Super Bowl is Coming

Once Minnesota won the bid for Super Bowl LII, the lengthy and complicated planning process began, led by the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee. This editor's letter-and-story combo, featured in the Winter 2017 issue of Minnesota Meetings + Events, covered what went into preparing for Super Bowl LII, how local businesses could get involved and the potential economic impact the Super Bowl could yield for Minnesota tourism.

CSR Central

This Editor's Letter & article combo (make sure to pan down to see both stories) revolved around MPI's 2014 World Education Congress in Minneapolis. It's a huge responsibility and opportunity in and of itself for Minneapolis to host this massive national event, but Meet Minneapolis and the local chapter of MPI teamed up to take it to a whole new level by launching a completely original CSR program representative of the local volunteer-rich community. The Editor's Letter won the Gold Publishing Excellence Award for Best Editor's Editorial in the Minnesota Magazine and Publishing Association (MMPA) in 2015.
