Meet Mandy, someone who has a long history with MPC. Mandy recently rejoined MPC as a Communications Consultant in January 2020. Before that, she was on the MPC Communications Team from 2004-2016, and served as Communications Director from 2011-2016. Fast-forward five years later, Mandy will be filling the interim role of Communications Director (again!) while Angel is out on maternity leave.
Mandy founded MBB Communications in 2020, with clients including MPC, the Historic Pullman Foundation, and The Chicago Community Trust. She is also a Board member of The Welcome Network, which supports immigrants and refugees to Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.
Q&A with Mandy
What are three items on your life bucket list?
Visit Tokyo, see the Northern Lights, and hike in Patagonia.
What’s the most rewarding part of your career?
I enjoy working with organizations that contribute to a more equitable and inviting Chicago region. I’ve lived here my entire life, and I can’t imagine doing what I do—strategic communications—for any other reason than the betterment of the place my family and I call home.
Coastal, mountains, or great lakes?
It’s a toss-up for me between the ocean and the Great Lakes. Either way, I’m a water baby.
