About

Hi, I'm Megan Ayotte

Founder of May Ott Communications. 

After nearly seven years of working in various public relations agencies and a global non-profit in Minneapolis, I decided to take that leap: becoming my own boss. An advocate against the "millennial" stereotype, I firmly believe that working differently (aka, not in a cube from 9-5) can often mean working better.

Here are a few areas where I shine:

  • Media relations AKA getting your brand in front of the public.
  • Writing key messages, blog posts, news releases, internal communications and brand positioning to help clients articulate their message more effectively and succinctly.
  • Managing influencer programs with top bloggers, athletes, celebrity chefs, social media stars.
  • Strategizing a brand's social media presence..
  • Networking.
  • Trying new restaurants in the Twin Cities and cooking at home.
  • Trip planning.
  • Drinking coffee or craft beer.

 

Prior to starting my own business, I was a PR Specialist at Be The Match, helping spread the word of the need for more people to sign up for the marrow registry. Additionally, I worked at Exponent PR and Weber Shandwick, building and executing PR strategy for national accounts like Land O'Lakes, Florida's Natural, WinField, Cargill and more. 

I'm meticulous, creative, assertive and a natural leader.

 

I'd love to get together to learn more about how we can work together, either now or in the future.
