Arianna Lyksett - Communications Coordinator
January 20, 2016
Arianna Lyksett has developed her skills working for a number of organizations, but they all have one important unifying quality: They allowed her to devote her talent and energy to a cause she believes in. Her position as Communications Coordinator at Vista Prairie is no different. She says, “I love working for Vista Prairie Communities because I believe in our mission – I’m so grateful to be a part of a team that is invested in our community’s future!”
After graduating with a degree in Journalism and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin River Falls, Arianna joined a senior care non-profit where she spent much of her time interviewing and working with elderly clients. Her career took her on a detour into newspaper reporting and another non-profit job for a couple years, but this July she was thrilled to find her way back to senior care when she was hired as the Communications Coordinator for Vista Prairie. She is looking forward to supporting the unique communication goals of VPC’s various communities and continuing to “assist in making sure we empower our residents and their families.”
Arianna’s first communications experience was in college, working as Music Director for a local radio station, WRFW 88.7 FM. Describing how important the station’s family atmosphere was to her, it’s clear that Arianna is someone who values strong and supportive communities.
Catch Arianna outside of work and you’ll probably find her coaching softball, cheering on the Twins at Target Field, or enjoying the great Minnesotan outdoors.
