A through-and-through South-Florida baby, Shana Rosenthal grew up in Parkland just around the corner from our office – and, she says, with the beautiful weather and the beach nearby, she’s had no reason not to stay. Shana (Shay-na, not Shah-na) grew up visiting Deerfield Beach with her parents, Don and Telma, and her older sister, Sara.
Shana has already had a strong start in her Communications career since graduating from Florida State University with a BS in two fields, Media Communication Studies and Political Science, and a Minor in Portuguese (Shana is a self-described Jew-zilian – her father is a Jewish New Yorker and her mom is a first-generation Brazilian-American).
She held positions at BowStern Marketing Communications and The Mosaic Group before taking on a Junior Account Executive role at Zimmerman Advertising. After cultivating her skills in brand management, market research and event planning, Shana decided she wanted to make her mark in a niche area within her field of expertise – and she found her niche here! She’ll be channeling her PR passions into clients like Blo Blow Dry Bar, PROSE, Pinch A Penny, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Stoner’s Pizza Joint and Dunkin’.
During her time away from the Fish office, you might see Shana spending time in any of South Florida’s many nature preserves, teaching herself to play guitar, or hitting the beach with her family and their dog, Xuxa – named for Shana’s mom’s favorite Brazilian pop star.
