Hi. I’m Lindsi. It’s nice to meet you. I’m a former nonprofiteer, and current problem solver, tech enthusiast, Jane-of-many-trades, and self-aware extrovert.
I started gish&co. in 2014 and feel fortunate to have brought a no-nonsense approach to marketing to many great organizations. Being a business owner has been a wild ride, full of challenges and epiphanies—but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Before gish&co. I was on the digital strategy team of a global PR firm, working on accounts such as the United States Postal Service, Red Stamp, and Sparticl.org (a project of Twin Cities Public Television and 3M). Prior to that, I ran all-things digital & communications for Second Harvest Heartland, one of the nation’s largest food banks under the Feeding America umbrella. I also spent some time in a B2B SMB, helping sell refurbished IT hardware throughout the land (but mostly Minneapolis).
I spend my free time hanging out with my husband/son/dog and other family and friends, doing DIY home projects (preferably ones that take two hours or less), finding the latest Minneapolis cocktail and dinner hotspots, conspiring with coworking friends, and plotting my next big travel adventure.

Hi there. I’m Alison. Proudly born and bred outside of Chicago, I’ve called Minneapolis home for 13 years. In that time, I’ve had the great privilege and responsibility of supporting some of our community’s most revered organizations and causes. Most recently I served as Communications Director at Second Harvest Heartland.
As a strategic communications consultant, I help nonprofit organizations, progressive causes, campaigns and change agents develop and deploy right-sized, audience-first strategies to achieve meaningful objectives. I bring expertise in public relations, thought leadership, public affairs, content strategy, storytelling and copywriting, project and vendor management, and more. You can learn more on my website.
Other hats I wear include group fitness instructor, Girls On The Run coach and head election judge. Off the clock, I’m spending time outside with my partner and pup, traveling, cooking and baking, or creating homemade trivia games for friends.
What’s it like working with gish&co.? Consider the following our manifesto on how we use marketing to make a difference.
You know your business. Our business is to tap into your passion and expertise and bring it to life through effective communications strategies (and good old fashioned storytelling).
At some point, it’s time to stop analyzing and make some choices. Which is why we like to find and suggest constructive ways to move forward. We particularly love to suggest solutions that get head nods from the entire room, including your toughest stakeholders (you know who we’re talking about!).
Your effectiveness as a leader is important. We see our job as helping bring clarity and traction to your world, so that you can move on to bigger, more strategic issues. Isn’t that how it should be when you bring in outside help?
We’re all about effectiveness. What does that mean? To us, it means doing things right, but not overdoing them. We’ll obsess over the details that make a difference, and help you cut through the mental clutter so you can focus on what really matters.
