Pronouns: she, her, hers

After her career as a Disney Princess failed, Blair knew she still wanted to do something with the public that could occasionally be paired with a really good glass of red. After grad school and a few other PR gigs that involved lots of coffee talk (literally), she found herself as the first full-time hire of ARPR in 2013. Throughout the years, she’s worn dozens of hats – from VP of marketing to mobility practice group lead to the new business manager to recruiter, helping to build ARPR’s brand into one of the fastest-growing technology PR firms in the country and the #1 tech PR firm in the Southeast. She’s been integral in helping ascend ARPR into a two-time Small Agency of the Year winner and the 2019 PRNews’Fastest Growing Agency. In 2020, Blair earned a spot on New Orleans CityBusiness’ Women of the Year list.

As a big part of her operations & people duties at ARPR, Blair oversees talent cultivation, retention, attraction and training for the Army of Awesome through a unique, multi-pronged approach that ensures we deliver the same uncanny commitment to our employees as we do to our clients. As a result, ARPR has earned the title Best Place to Work nine times. In addition, she continues to provide strategic counsel and guidance to support the agency’s growing team, services and client base.

When she’s not searching for the next member of the Army of Awesome, driving leads with her tweeting thumbs and award-winning social media expertise, or counting her steps and client wins at industry trade shows like CES, SXSW and HIMSS… you can find her getting her passport stamped across the world, playing tourist in her own town or at Disney World to visit Elsa, Cinderella and the gang. Read her thoughts about the future of this 120+-year-old industry and about life as a country Cajun girl living in the Big Easy via Twitter and LinkedIn
