Laurie A. Moon-Schmorrow
Managing Director, LM3 Marketing
More than 25 years ago, I decided to become a contributing journalist to my small, high school publication. It was then I realized I loved writing and my love of story-telling truly began. Over the years, my fondness for telling stories has intensified and is apparent in any conversation I have or for any client I represent.
During my 10+ years of time in the Marketing and Communications field, I have worked on the agency side, and as a consultant creating public relations and social media programs for small businesses and nonprofits in the veterinary, animal care, culinary and home-improvement markets. I’ve also worked in corporate contract roles in independent schools, technology and consumer lighting industries.
My experience has afforded me unique opportunities to develop communications campaigns and events for regional corporations and entities, including: The Academy at Penguin Hall, Cumberland Farms, Gulf Oil, Olivia’s Organics, and Arborjet; and valuable global communications experience developing external initiatives and major corporate events for EBSCO Information Services and OSRAM-SYLVANIA.
I completed my Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Internet Marketing, with a second specialization in Social Media Marketing from Southern New Hampshire University in 2015. I maintain social media and inbound marketing certifications from HubSpot and I’m certified in Google Analytics. I really enjoy social analytics and often get lost in that information (great news for you!)
I’m a proud mom, a best friend to a perfect canine, lifelong Boston Bruins fan and hobby crocheter. I recycle just about everything and enjoy cooking, writing and traveling. I’m an avid PR/Social media blogger, and some of my writings have been featured in Ragan’s PR Daily, About.com and PR Week.
In 2019, I launched a financial support initiative Schmorrow Strides in honor of my late husband, Mark, who passed from a rare neurological condition called Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN.) This initiative seeks to provide small grants to families that are experiencing financial hardship due to acquisition of necessary — and expensive — mobility aids and recreational equipment. The initiative also funds an annual scholarship in Mark’s memory to a deserving high school senior.
I also created a grief blog to help me channel and better understand my grief, while shedding light on the challenges young spousal caregivers and widows face. My hope is this blog will become a community where other widows and widowers share their unique stories of loss, survival and the re-creation of themselves in an effort to assist others who may need that support.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me.
