After several weeks of living in quarantined uncertainty, we’ve found ourselves longing for once-trivial team interactions – breakroom small talk, hallway high-fives, firm handshakes that mean business. Even Carly’s lunchtime salmon, Budmayr’s pacing phone calls and Matt’s disheveled hairstyle would be welcomed with open arms right about now. (Okay – maybe it is time for a haircut, Matt.) But despite this unexpected isolation, our team is still focusing on, well, being a team. And that includes making our new hires feel like part of the (socially distanced) squad.
Help us properly* welcome the five new L&Sers on the roster. Some joined us B.C. (before coronavirus), and some jumped in and experienced the effects of the pandemic their first couple days at the company.
* “Properly” was used loosely here, as we haven’t had the opportunity to photograph these fresh faces yet. But we improvised.
Jenny joins our team after working as the Marketing and Graphic Design Manager at Ursa Minor Brewing in Duluth, MN. Her experience in advertising, production and illustrative design bring elevated work and out-of-the-box concepts to our team.
With a play hard, work harder mentality, Dillon brings a background in banking to provide financial reporting and analytics, helping ensure our team spends our resources as effectively as possible.
From strategy and planning to business analytics, the University of North Dakota grad combines her education and experience to keep our team at the forefront of digital trends.

Elle’s diverse knowledge of the media industry combined with her background in optimizing strategies and planning cross-channel campaigns ensure our clients’ message is always in the right place at the right time.
At L&S, when employees continuously stand out, they move up. Help us congratulate the four employees who were promoted in the last six months.
Sara joined our team in June 2019 as an Account Service Intern, but recently, she’s been hired on full-time. Her go-getter mentality allows her to effortlessly lead projects, solve problems and execute solutions.
Director of Political & Public Affairs
Ryan’s previous work experience with the South Dakota Governor’s Office and extensive knowledge in politics, economic development and public policy make him the perfect guy for his new position.
Senior Media Strategist
After planning and placing effective media strategies for over four years at L&S, Dara recently earned a new title. Her expertise helps us take a message and propel it through various marketing channels to reach our audience on target and on time.
