Congratulations Jessica Brutzman | Graduate of Leadership Grand Traverse

We want to give a HUGE shout-out to our own Jessica Brutzman for completing the Traverse Connect Leadership Grand Traverse program!

Jessica serves as a Director on the Aspire North Board, and as the Chair of both the RPAC Committee and the Technology Task Team! We are lucky to have Jessica as an Aspire North Leader, and undoubtedly will benefit from the skills she learned throughout this experience! Congratulations Jessica!

Communications & Marketing Director

As the Communications and Marketing Director, I oversee all the messaging and the manner in which it's delivered to our members.  This includes managing our weekly newsletter, social media presence, the members-only Facebook group, and our MLS Talk listserv.  With a background in visual arts, design, photography, and videography, I also help to develop original graphics, advertisements, and photo and video content.  If you're at one of our many events and see someone walking around with a camera, that's me!  As the unofficial tech guru of the office, I also work with staff to research and implement new technology and/or processes to better serve our members and reach them where they live, something that has become more important since the time of COVID.
