Laura Limp has joined the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites (ISMHS) as Development Officer. Limp comes to ISMHS after serving as live events manager at Townsquare Media, the third largest owner of radio stations across the U.S. She also served as regional communications and marketing director at the American Red Cross as the international organization transitioned their internal structure.
Prior to working at Townsquare, Limp was the senior public relations and media strategist at Martopia Public Relations, a Chicago-based full-service communications firm. She also launched her own successful fashion consulting company in Chicago, worked for The Oprah Winfrey show and was cast on a reality show “Style Me with Rachel Hunter,” which filmed in New York City.
She holds a bachelor’s of science from Indiana University, Bloomington.
Limp will focus her development efforts on six State Historic Sites: Angel Mounds, Historic New Harmony, Vincennes, Corydon, Culbertson Mansion (New Albany) and Lanier Mansion (Madison). Her efforts will include fundraising events for private donors and public programming for the entire community to generate funds that will assist in the operation of all six locations. Limp is based at the Angel Mounds State Historic Site, although she is looking forward to working intimately with each site and within their respective communities.
