Carmichael Lynch Spong has named Shannon Dickey as an associate. Dickey has served as an intern with the agency for the past nine months. She has consistently impressed her fellow colleagues with her work for clients Jack Link’s® Beef Jerky, MATADORTM Beef Jerky, MasterBrand Cabinets, SUPERVALU® and Trane.
Prior to joining Carmichael Lynch Spong in 2010, Dickey served as a community relations intern for the University of Minnesota’s Academic Health Center. She was a key player in executing the school’s communications plan, largely focusing on the work being done within the six health professional schools and colleges. She also aided the planning and execution of many large-scale events.
Dickey also served as an intern at Wishes & More, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children fighting a terminal or life-threatening condition. This required Dickey to work alongside the Wishes & More staff and volunteers, estimating costs of the wishes, planning and executing wishes, and evaluating the success after completion. She continues her work with this program, volunteering in her spare time.
“During her internship with Carmichael Lynch Spong, Shannon has proven to be a valuable resource to the agency and our clients,” says Julie Batliner, managing director for the firm. “We look forward to having Shannon officially on board.”
Dickey received her bachelor’s degree in strategic communications with a minor in business management from the University of Minnesota.
