Sandie Young (@SandieMYoung) is the director of marketing and senior consultant at PR 20/20. She is a graduate of Ohio University, with a Bachelor of Science from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism.
Sandie’s journalistic background and previous roles as editor / staff writer have shaped her writing and strategic thinking skills. As journalist-turned-marketer, Sandie enjoys finding the intriguing story behind every branded campaign. “The role of marketer is an important one. We have the ability to inspire consumer passions, and contribute to building more loveable, relatable brands.”
At PR 20/20, Sandie is most inspired by the genuine, driven culture. “Our culture is fueled by a deep passion for what we do, and driven by a group of motivated, talented and fascinating people.”
Sandie has a passion for fitness. She's obsessed with cycling, and you can often find her on a yoga mat after-hours. She also enjoys a good book, a glass of red wine and authentic Italian food. But, nothing brings her more joy than family, friends and her 5-pound dog, Stella.
“I wouldn't be where I am today without the guidance and support of my loving parents, who taught me that success is doing what you love and encouraged me to always follow big dreams.”
Fact #2: Her guilty pleasure (that is sometimes guilt-free): blueberry flavored anything.
Fact #3: Sandie spent the summer of 2010 interning for Encore Magazine in LA. She had the opportunity to interview Miss Universe, and write more than 20 articles for the online publication.
