PHOENIX – Former journalist Miranda Landsman has been named director of marketing and communications for the Seena Magowitz Foundation.
Landsman worked as a TV news reporter in Texas and New York City, and then spent a year doing humanitarian aid work in South America, Asia, Europe and Africa. During that time, she partnered with CBN News and aired a series of profiles of the people she encountered in her work.
She also worked as an ambassador for a U.S.-based anti-trafficking organization, and was the marketing and public relations manager for a conservation nonprofit.
“Miranda’s experience traveling the globe and reporting on hot topics got our attention,” said Roger Magowitz, founder of The Seena Magowitz Foundation. “We have found that stories about patients and their battles have been a lightning rod of hope, and Miranda is passionate about helping others tell their story. We wanted to have an ambitious young person with experience on air to bring messaging to patients. We also wanted a fresh set of eyes to join us with different thoughts and visions.”
Landsman graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in mass communications. Her first job was as a TV news reporter for an NBC affiliate in Texas.
