December 20,2017

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Fingerpaint, a full-service marketing agency with offices in Arizona, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, has added Alessia Grijalva to its public relations team. Grijalva will be based in the agency’s Scottsdale, Arizona, office.

Grijalva will bring a fresh perspective to the Fingerpaint public relations team, recently earning her master’s in advertising and public relations. Grijalva completed her master’s as well as her undergraduate studies in public relations and finance, all in her four years at the University of Alabama.

Grijalva honed her public relations and finance skills interning for Zion & Zion, Forza Financial, the Brunswick Group, and the Arizona Cardinals. Most recently she worked as a public relations consultant volunteer at the United Service Organization, where she helped develop and implement a communications plan to increase local awareness, recruit volunteers and promote the USO in the Arizona market.

“Alessia is a highly driven and motivated individual, whose marketing and public relations knowledge will make her an integral member of our team,” said Michelle Olson, who runs Fingerpaint’s Scottsdale office. “Her finance and advertising backgrounds complement one another to help her apply business goals to communication strategies.”
