Annie Lynsen - Director of Awesomeness
(She's our marketing/communications guru.)
Whether it’s developing partner relationships, managing Small Act’s social media presences or crafting fun little mailings to express appreciation to our clients, Annie is always working to make sure Small Act is the first thing nonprofits and associations think of when they consider who to turn to for social CRM and social data. Prior to her job with Small Act, Annie worked for six years in print and electronic communications with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and then for two years as the manager of online content and community development with KaBOOM!. When she’s not on the clock, Annie likes cooking, crocheting and singing in two local pirate bands. (Yes, really.)
