Las Vegas public relations and marketing firm Connected Communications has promoted Whitney Maher to public relations and social media manager. Before her promotion, Maher served as a public relations specialist for the firm for nearly three years.

“Whitney’s background in journalism, combined with her project management and writing skills, have made her an incredible asset to our firm and clients,” said Sarah Thornton, APR, president and founder of Connected Communications.

In her new position, Maher is training staff members and managing day-to-day projects to help optimize the firm’s services offered to its clients.

Maher joined Connected Communications in 2019 when the firm was known as Sarah Thornton Public Relations. Since then, she has helped the firm rebrand and expand into new industries. Maher has been behind some of the firm’s top media placements for its clients, including the cover of the Wall Street Journal’s real estate section, FOX Business, NPR and the Los Angeles Times.

Maher earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication from Arizona State University in 2015. She started her career as a sports reporter and copy editor at The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Washington, covering sports teams that included Gonzaga University men’s basketball during the team’s run to the Final Four, Eastern Washington University football and the Spokane Indians Minor League Baseball team. She also worked as a news and sports producer and videographer for Spokane’s CBS affiliate KREM 2 News.
