She recently departed the 9-to-5 world to strike out on her own and launched The Lemieux Group, a consulting firm that provides communications, public relations and crisis management services. In this capacity, she served as the Communications and Engagement Strategist to Cynthia Nixon’s campaign for governor of New York and is currently working as a Communications Strategist for Girls for Gender Equity, a leading grassroots organizing, advocacy, policy and service delivery organization centering youth of color within the racial and gender justice movement of the 21st century.
