Bellmont Partners has added Bridget Nelson Monroe to its growing team

Prior Lake-based Bellmont Partners Public Relations has added senior account executive Bridget Nelson Monroe to its growing team. Monroe brings additional digital strategy, journalism and media relations experience to the full-service agency. Before joining Bellmont Partners, Monroe was a digital strategist at Beehive PR in St. Paul where she brought her journalist’s perspective to media relations, helping identify clients’ newsworthy stories and which audiences and platforms they would resonate with in this 24/7 news environment. Monroe also consulted on everything from website redesigns to social media and SEO for regional and national clients.
Monroe started her career in New York, first spending three years as a research editor and writer at Reader’s Digest magazine, then working at digital marketing agency Digitas Health. As a content strategist, she combined her publishing and digital skills to manage websites for some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
While attending Drake University, where she earned a degree in journalism and mass communication, Monroe was selected for a highly competitive editorial apprenticeship program at Meredith Corporation. She spent two semesters at the publishing company’s flagship magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, working alongside senior-level editors in the features, health, food and decorating departments.
Monroe is an active volunteer for several industry organizations, including the Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association (MIMA) programming committee, the Minneapolis Content Strategy Meetup and the Minnesota Blogger Conference. At Bellmont Partners, Monroe focuses on media relations, social media, research, writing, event planning, and how all of those areas can best intersect for maximum impact.
“We’re excited to welcome Bridget to the team,” says Jen Bellmont, Bellmont Partners Vice President. “It’s already clear that her experience will be a great asset to our organization. She’s extremely sharp, and we’re eager to share her expertise with our growing list of clients.”
