It’s been about a month since we launched in DC and we are amazed at the awesomeness of the single scene in the city! Today we kick-off Sunday Spotlight: Notable Singles in DC to feature some of the most amazing singles in DC who are making a dent in politics, law, education, media, art, and technology.
First up is Lindsey Mask who is changing the way women connect with each other across nation. Lindsey is the founder & CEO of Ladies America, a national network that promotes mentorship, social networking, and career advancement opportunities for professional women of all age groups.
But wait. That actually is her side job! For her “real work,” she founded and successfully grew Mask Media Co., a public relations & social media consultancy business in DC & Los Angeles! It was recently acquired by Crosswind Media & Public Relations and now has offices all over the country! Congratulations Lindsey! You can check her out on Twitter at @lindseymask
1. What do you do & how did you get here?
I do a couple of things. First, I am a public relations, marketing and media consultant, serving as Vice President of Crosswind Media & Public Relations. They are based out of Austin and recently acquired my small boutique firm based in DC. I love working with such a dynamic, experienced team, and I just know together, we are going to build one of the strongest firms in the country.
Additionally, I am the Founder & CEO of Ladies America, a national network of professional women. We have events occurring in cities around the country, focus on specific initiatives and host an annual women’s conference called “Women Leading the Future.” My passion for seeing women excel coupled with my political background working for members of Congress and my craft in public relations, makes for a very exciting and fulfilling endeavor.
2. One reason why DC is great for singles!
DC is great for ANYONE because it is laced with opportunity, access to extraordinarily intelligent people in every corner, no shortage of events, black tie galas, art shows, runs, philanthropic opportunities and just a general feeling that being in the nation’s capital somehow — matters.
3. Where would you go on your first date?
In all honesty, I shy away from questions like this one, but if I really give it some thought, I would probably say the Kennedy Center. I like to dress up for an occasion, love live dance and theater, and find the Kennedy Center to have a grand mystic to it that feels enchanting and regal. All that said, I love a good Irish Pub, the 930 Club, and any place where a hardworking lady can let her hair down a little.
