Objective

Bobbi Snethen

Bobbi hails from Madison, WI, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin where she studied journalism and strategic communication. Following a stint as a freelance reporter, she served as a public relations professional in the nonprofit sector working to enhance community service through storytelling and online engagement. Wired to connect, Bobbi is often found rooting for the home team (in her case, the Green Bay Packers), contemplating Earlybird vs. Valencia, or generating “likes” like a boss.

On June 16, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes hit Northeast Nebraska. In response, we’re launching Operation: Tough Town to provide expedient home repair, debris removal, and assist local officials with relief operations.
