Mathe is president/owner of Mathe Communications, which is a fancy way of saying she freelances. On any given day she’s pitching media, writing case studies, coordinating and promoting events, media coaching, crisis coaching or producing corporate videos. Prior to going out on her own, she spent several years working on national media campaigns for Carmichael Lynch Spong PR agency, now Carmichael Lynch Relate. Past and present clients include Xcel Energy, Trane, American Standard, Maytag, Cargill, Harley Davidson, PETCO and the Minnesota State Fair.
Before her PR days, Mathe spent six years in television news as a general assignment reporter and anchor in Denver, Colorado Springs and Great Falls, Montana. During that time, she covered everything: agriculture, transportation, legislation, forest fires, floods, presidential speeches, murder, mayhem and more.
Mathe has a B.A. in Journalism from the University of St. Thomas and a French Minor. She lives in Wayzata with her husband and two children, all of whom are avid hockey fans.
