#FollowFriday- Lisa DentenBy Gini Dietrich

You’re going to think I have a crush on everyone who works at Cision when you read today’s #FollowFriday, but I can’t help it!

Introducing one Ms. Lisa Denten, the social media manager at Cision and a features writer for Cision Navigator.

She recently got married and I told her I was so thankful because Denten is so much easier to spell than her maiden name, Larranaga. Although, with International Talk Like a Pirate Day yesterday, I feel like Larranaga makes a good pirate word. Arrrr….Larranaga.

Lisa filled the role Yvette Pistorio left when she joined Arment Dietrich a little more than a year ago. Though I flirted a bit with her online, I didn’t actually meet her in person until Sam Fiorella was in Chicago earlier this year to promote “Influence Marketing,” the book he wrote with Danny Brown.

I think she might be one of the happiest people on earth. She is always smiling and never has a cross word to say about anyone or anything. In fact, she has this beautiful smile that lights up an entire room and attracts people to her like moths to a light.

She grew up in the Chicagoland area and left briefly to attend St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. She is mom to Pearl, a sweet hound dog who loves to eat Frosted Mini Wheats and magazines.

She and husband, Tom, are still newlyweds, having gotten married just four months ago.

In her professional life, she manages the social networks for Cision, manages their blog, and also writes for Navigator, the weekly industry update.

If you live in Chicago or ever travel here, I highly recommend you add Lisa to your “must meet” list. Not only will you see I’m right about her smile, you’ll enjoy getting to know her because of her glowing personality.

If you don’t have the chance to meet her in person, get to know her online. You can find her on TwitterFacebookLinkedInGooogle+Pinterest, and the Cision blog.

Sorry for the late congrats. We were working on the pre-rollout of a new site and missed my daily dose of Spin Sucks. Great to meet you!

Very nice to meet you. I am excited to follow someone new on Pinterest.

I love the Chicago area! All the amazing buildings and shopping.

My lord is it Friday already? I just dialed into that little known fact. Guess I better reread @jasonkonopinski piece about being always on, clearly I did not absorb it properly. 

Anyway, Lisa totally a pleasure to meet you and congrats on getting Spun. If I may be so bold, it sounds like you are kicking some tail in your life, and that's great. You'll find no better place where people care & support that than Team SpinSucks aka Team Krayzy (Krazie? KrayKray? The SpiNSA?).

@ginidietrich Loved your grammar police story for SM Today. Wars have started over the comma usage. ;)

Can you give me her address please; I'll be sure to stop by right after I leave your place. And I really am low maintenance, I will eat and drink just about anything so don't worry about having to do any 'special' shopping for me.....

Nice to meet you Lisa, and thanks for sharing @ginidietrich

A pleasure to meet you too, Joe, and thank you for the warm welcome! I completely agree; Spin Sucks is such a unique, cozy community. There's none like it. You can learn, make friends and be a bit kooky, too :)

For what it matters, I vote Krazie :)

It's wonderful to meet you, too!

@creativeoncall Thank you, Chuck! That very event where Gini and I met also was my first time singing a marketing song on camera thanks to you! Good thing Gini didn't post that video here. I was off-key :)
