Alyssa Putzer

Always on. Always. Alyssa’s professional experience — marketing communications, social media, content strategy and curation, media relations, newspaper reporting and editing — is as varied as her background. She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh where she earned degrees in Religious Studies and Journalism with an emphasis on Public Relations, as well as a minor in International Studies. There is no off-switch with Alyssa. Her passion for literacy, health, fitness and travel fuel her high level of engagement across all client work, whether closely managing social communities, executing experiential tours or driving consumer advocacy programs for Kohnstamm clients. Outside of the office, she continues to burn bright as an ESL teacher for non-English speaking immigrants and refugees in North Minneapolis through the Minnesota Literacy Council.


As a diamond-shaped organization, the real heart inside of Kohnstamm resides in its two VPs, Aaron Berstler and Alan Newbold, who together set the stage for high engagement, creativity, consistently great results — and the prevailing sense of humanity that pervades how we work.
